Sometimes referred to as psychoeducational evaluations, these assessments typically consist of a review of the client’s history, interviews, cognitive testing, and assessments of academic skills. Such evaluations might be used to:
- Provide academic/career direction based on an individual’s profile of strengths and weaknesses
- Establish whether a learning disability in a particular area (e.g., written expression) is present that might merit special education or 504 services
- Determine whether there is a disability present that might merit accommodations such as extended time, preferential seating, and note taking assistance.
