What is psychological and psychoeducational testing?
Psychological testing refers to formal assessment methods psychologists use to better understand an individual's psychological or cognitive functioning, determine or clarify a psychiatric or neurodevelopment diagnosis, and assist in the development of appropriate therapeutic interventions. Psychoeducational testing involves a standardized assessment of a child's intellectual and academic skills and is often used to help facilitate educational placement and special education services. Evaluation services help parents and caregivers understand their child's strengths and difficulties and can assist parents in obtaining the guidance needed to ensure their child's future success.
