What is psycho-educational evaluation?
A psycho-educational evaluation measures the cognitive abilities that show how a child learns, problem solves, reasons, and remembers information. It also measures academic achievement, or how well a child performs in subject areas like math and reading.
The Children’s Dyslexia Center of Bangor accepts psycho-educational evaluations that are school-based or privately obtained. See the brochure for the Children’s Dyslexia Centers, Inc. for information on what measures must be provided to determine eligibility. For recommendations for professionals to perform evaluations, consult your child’s primary care provider.
