Help! My kid is struggling in school.

Feeling like no one understands your child’s learning needs? Finally get the answers you need!

Back-to-school can be a stressful time for both children and parents. For children with learning disabilities, it can be even more challenging. If you are concerned that your child may have a learning disability, psychoeducational testing can be a valuable tool.

Psychoeducational testing is a comprehensive evaluation of a child’s cognitive, academic, emotional, and behavioral functioning. It can help identify areas of strength and weakness, as well as potential learning disabilities. The results of psychoeducational testing can be used to develop a personalized educational plan that will help your child succeed in school.

Psychoeducational testing can help identify specific learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia. This information can be used to get your child the support they need to succeed in school. It can also help you get accommodations for your child in school.

Accommodations are changes to the way that schoolwork is presented or assessed that can help your child achieve greater success in school. Examples of accommodations include:

  • Extended time on tests
  • Preferential seating
  • The use of a calculator

Additionally, Psychoeducational testing can provide peace of mind for parents who are concerned about their child’s learning. The results of the testing can help you understand your child’s learning style and identify areas where they may need extra help.

If you are concerned that your child may have a learning disability, or would like to consult with someone for additional information, Waypoint Wellness Center has several highly qualified school psychologists, and a school neuropsychologist, with over 20 years of experience.
