Educational Testing

An evaluation of your child can range from a simple classroom observation to a full psychoeducational assessment, and everything in between. An educational evaluation could include the following components, depending on your child's individual needs and questions:

  • Review of school records and previous testing
  • Interviews with parents, child, and/or teacher(s)
  • Classroom observation(s)
  • Intellectual Quotient (IQ)
  • Cognitive Processing (could include verbal ability, visual processing of information, auditory processing of information, short-term memory, long-term memory, processing speed)
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Written Expression
  • Listening Comprehension
  • Social-emotional-behavioral rating scales (including attention problems)

Evaluations include an in-office conference to discuss assessment results as well as a comprehensive written report detailing test findings and a treatment recommendation plan. If clients travel a distance for testing, the feedback conference can be done via skype if that is more convenient.

Most feedback sessions are scheduled within two weeks of data collection. It is important to us at ETS to get you the information you need as soon as possible.
