What is a psychoeducational evaluation?

A psychoeducational evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of a child's current functioning in home and school environments. The evaluation answers the why and how questions. The why question is the essential focus of the evaluation and is the building block for determining the reasons behind a child's academic struggles. The how question and portion of the evaluation specifies how the child's educational needs can be met. Specific and feasible instructional interventions, modification in test taking, strategies for the home environment, and recommendations for services by other education professionals (e.g., speech, occupational, or physical therapists, neurologists, psychologists etc.) are offered.
