Do you work with students who struggle at school? Psycho-educational assessments combine standardized assessments of a child’s intellectual and academic abilities with the dynamic clinical judgment of a trained psychologist to determine the what, how, and why of struggling students.

This session will take a deep dive into what teachers need to know about the psycho-educational process including:

  • The psychological processes that underlie learning: such as language and phonological processing, fine-motor and graphomotor processing, executive functioning, visual-spatial processing, processing speed, working memory, etc.
  • The specific academic skills being investigated: including reading, writing, math, language, etc.
  • Aspects of social/emotional and behavioural functioning that may be impacting the student: including attention and concentration, depression, anxiety, etc.
  • The diagnostic process
  • Recommendations, strategies, and accommodations
  • Using the psycho-educational assessment report for Individual Education/Program Planning (IPPs, IEPs, etc.)
