Psychological Testing for children and adolescents

When students struggle in school, a psychoeducational evaluation may be necessary in order to understand the cognitive processes underlying achievement. Public school districts offer testing for special education when students are exhibiting an educational impact. However, there are situations in which students struggle without obvious educational impact that would warrant an evaluation through the school.

 

Psychoeducational assessment through Water’s Edge offers a look into the learning patterns of students. Evaluations may include assessment of cognition, executive functioning, sensory, attention, social language, memory, achievement, and behavior. Referrals for specific learning disability, intellectual disability, autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and emotional disturbance are considered. Additionally, specific evaluations, such as those for the Autism Waiver, can be conducted. Students served range from preschool through high school.

 

Evaluations take place in 2-3 hour sessions after school. Many times, more than one session is necessary in order to answer the referral question. Saturday full-day appointments are available on request. An evaluation includes intake and interview, standardized assessment, follow-up assessment, interpretation of results, and copies of the report for home and school use. Families will be talked through appropriate interventions and accommodations for their student’s results as well as how the results may impact education. Consultation on special education is also available.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approaches for this disorder have emerged relatively recently, and available evidence from open and randomized controlled trials suggests that these approaches are promising in producing significant symptom reduction.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a popular and em­pirically supported treatment for a number of common mental health problems, including mild to moderate major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, and bulimia nervosa.
