School Neuropsychological Evaluation
A school neuropsychological assessment is the integration of neuropsychological and educational principles to the assessment and intervention processes with children and adolescents to facilitate learning and behavior within the school and family systems. This type of evaluation assesses a child’s functioning in major areas of higher-level brain functioning including memory, attention, impulse control, speed and efficiency of mental processing, language, visual-spatial skills, visual-motor coordination, planning, and organization. Evaluation includes a detailed investigation of a child’s developmental, medical, social, and psychological history and an extensive battery of tests. Results obtained in a school neuropsychological evaluation will provide the information needed to generate a very comprehensive description of a child’s learning style, current needs and specific interventions needed.
A psychoeducational evaluation usually includes an assessment of a child’s social history, intellectual abilities, and basic academic skills (reading, mathematics, writing) as well as a psychological screening. The results of this type of evaluation provides information about learning disabilities and psychological distress that impact a child’s learning or functioning.
A psychological evaluation is the examination of a child’s behavior, personality, capabilities, and socio-emotional adjustment. This type of evaluation is often used for clarification of diagnosis or to gain a more in depth understanding of a child or adolescent's emotional functioning.
