What is a psycho-educational assessment?
A psycho-educational assessment determines whether your child has a learning disability or any other issues that hinder their ability to learn. It assesses your child’s cognitive (i.e. intellectual) abilities, academic achievement levels, information processing abilities, and general emotional and behavioural issues. These evaluations usually measure emotional/behavioural functioning and their impact on the child’s academic success.
