Psychoeduational Evaluations 

Comprehensive Psychoeducational Evaluations for Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and more

I offer comprehensive assessments for clients of all ages, with a focus on school-aged clients and young adults. That includes Millennials & Gen Z!  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 or work performance.  These assessments help to determine strengths and needs as well as determine eligibility for Special Education services for 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. 

Parts of the assessment are conducted virtually due to the ongoing 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 & price range.

Have you always suspected that you might have ADHD or Autism, but are not quite sure? Or are just curious about what your IQ might be? I am able to offer affordable psychoeducational assessments to adult clients who feel they may need help identifying any learning, social or behavioral differences they have. My specialty includes learning disabilities (including Dyslexia), Autism & ADHD. Anxiety & Depression (related to school or work), and many other areas can also be assessed. 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 for adults can be more affordable if there is no need for school / academic-based accommodations.
