What is Psychoeducational Testing and how can it help your child?

Back to Basics Learning Dynamics Director, Beverly Stewart, M.Ed.

If you have ever wondered if your child is having more than normal difficulty in a particular subject, but were not sure what to do, Back to Basics can help. We offer psychoeducational testing administered by our licensed psychologists. Psychoeducational testing is an aid in determining if an individual has a learning disability.

A typical assessment takes between four to six hours. Prior to the testing, the psychologist gathers a great deal of background information such as developmental milestones, medical history, school history and family history. Through a battery of tests she will be able to assess abilities in math, reading, writing, memory skills, visual motor skills, learning style and whether emotional factors may be affecting learning.

After the assessment is complete the psychologist writes a detailed report which explains the results of the testing and provides recommendations to the parents and the teachers as to how to improve the student’s performance.

Please contact Beverly Stewart, M.Ed at 302-594-0754 if you ever feel that your child would benefit from psychoeducational testing.
