If your child seems bored and not challenged enough in school then he/she could likely benefit from placement in a more challenging classroom. Both public and private schools have gifted or advanced classes for children who excel academically compared to peers. Most schools require students to receive an IQ assessment by a licensed psychologist before they are eligible for placement.
Clinicians, experienced psychologists and therapists, at Miami Psychology Group administer the most up to date assessment measures approved by schools to individuals as young as 2 years old in a comfortable environment. Psychologists and therapists at Miami Psychology Group also provide appropriate feedback to parents and are available to provide feedback and recommendations to school administers.
Psycho-educational Testing for ADHD or Specific Learning Disorders
Psycho-educational testing involves using psychological tests to identify the mental processes that are associated with academic and educational performance.
Psycho-educational evaluations are usually completed to diagnose learning disorders, intellectual disabilities, or attention difficulties as well as to identify an individual’s educational strengths and weaknesses to help them reach their full academic potential.
Children with academic difficulties who are usually referred for psycho-educational evaluations by schools may struggle with attention or specific academic subjects and may eventually fall behind academically without intervention.
A thorough evaluation will guide parents and teachers by providing specific recommendations regarding the child’s difficulties in order to help the child achieve their full potential.
Please contact Dr. Elsa M. Orlandini and Miami Psychology Group to learn more about our assessment services that include thorough evaluations and individualized feedback and recommendations for parents and teachers.
