Psychoeduational Evaluations 

Comprehensive Independent Educational Evaluations for Autism, ADHD and Learning Disabilitiies

I offer comprehensive assessments for students of all ages, including college-age students. Evaluations are completed with integrity and fidelity and can now be completed VIRTUALLY. This includes private assessments for children where there may be concerns regarding potential processing deficits or learning disabilities. This also includes gifted identification, Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE), and/or assessments for public and private schools.  Evaluations are generally based on referral and primary areas of concern. Psycho-educational assessments use a variety of techniques and systems to evaluate academic skills, behavior and emotional development as well as social development. 

Once I complete the evaluation, I write a detailed report outlining my findings as well as recommendations for enhancing school performance.  These assessments help to determine learning strengths and needs as well as determine eligibility for Special Education services (ages 10 - 22 years) using IDEA eligibility criteria, Section 504 Accommodations (Preschool through College), and GATE services (K-12).  Results can also be used to determine eligibility for accommodations on college entrance exams.

Assessments may be conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic and state guidelines/regulations.

Depending on where you are located in CA, I travel for assessments, just ask me and I'll provide the details!

Adult Assessments

ADHD, Autism & Learning Differences and more for every age

I am able to offer psychoeducational assessments to adult clients who feel they may need support identifying any learning, social or behavioral differences they have. My specialty includes learning disabilities (including Dyslexia) and ADHD. I am also able to assess for Autism, Anxiety (related to school or work) and many other areas. These assessments aim to identify learning strengths, learning styles and areas of need. My assessments come with recommendations and a thorough review of data, which often helps my clients feel empowered and able to better navigate school, work or home life. Assessments can be completed virtually!
