This is an assessment focusing on the learning ability of an individual and is used to identify whether a learning difficulty or disability may be present. This includes general learning disabilities as well as more specific disabilities such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia.
A psycho-educational assessment is usually requested when a parent or teacher is concerned that a child is struggling with academic areas such as reading, spelling, or maths. This is particularly concerning when the child has plenty of support at home and in school. The assessment is used to identify strengths and weaknesses across a learning profile. It examines whether or not a child is under-achieving, or overachieving, in a specific academic area relative to what you would expect for their age and level of intelligence.
Based on the assessment we provide teachers and parents with a detailed report of the individual's different abilities. Using this, we can create strategic interventions and learning solutions that are best suited to their need and current abilities, with the overall aim to develop their learning.
This assessment is suitable for individual of all ages, however we would recommend 7 years to be the youngest for Dyslexia/Dyscalculia assessments.
