This information is used to answer referral questions.
The psychoeducational assessments consist of testing of intellectual abilities, emotional and social adjustments, personality, visual and motor functioning, visual motor integration, expressive and receptive language functioning, achievement as well as diagnostic reading and math, and testing of attention and concentration problems. The instruments include interviews of the child/adolescent, parents and/or teachers.
