A psycho-educational assessment aims to generate a holistic picture of a child's learning profile and provides a deeper understanding of their educational abilities and possible support needs.   

When a child experiences difficulty in term of their learning, this assessment allows us to investigate the possible causes of the difficulty, and to address these effectively in order to support the child's academic, emotional, and social growth. Understanding a child's learning profile and support needs means that knowledge about a child's academic strengths and challenges, scholastic skill levels, and emotional profile can be gathered, explored and taken into consideration when identifying potential learning barriers and appropriate interventions to support a child's overall functioning in an academic setting.

 

This assessment is of benefit to children of all ages.
