Psychoeducational Assessment

Assessments

The following are assessments and other Psychological and Behavioral Services Division services conducted by Weinfeld Education Group expert staff.  Assessments determine
  • The students’ educational strengths and needs?
  • Does the client have a disability, which requires special education services?
  • What are the specific recommendations for the client?

Neuro Psychological Assessments are often required for cases of significant complexity, which may have challenging congenital or other neurological concerns.  These concerns may be the result of difficult pregnancies or deliveries, possible toxicity during the pre-natal period, small birth weight and/or size, developmental delays in multiple areas, a history of seizures, very high temperatures, head trauma, rare disorders, and ongoing health issues, for example. 

Psycho educational Assessments are normally employed for relatively high frequency cases of learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Emotional Disorders, Social Adaptive and Behavioral Challenges without significant neurological involvement. 

Educational Assessments are sometimes required to supplement other assessment information in specific areas of educational achievement.

Assessment services may be available on a subsidized basis for qualified families through our partnerships with Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA) and The Children's Law Center (CLC).

Admissions Testing
Weinfeld Education Group provides intellectual and achievement tests performed by licensed psychologists as required by many private schools in the DC metropolitan region.  These assessments are often briefer than comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological evaluations and are an affordable requirement for school entry. 

Psychological Consultation
Weinfeld Education Group offer psychological consultation services on an hourly basis for persons of all ages not requiring a full psychological testing battery but who may need clinical interviews for clarification of critical issues.
