Are you considering educational or psychological testing for your child or teen?
For children struggling in school with academic or social issues, the staff at Pinellas Psychology Associates can help to identify problem areas that may be impacting your child’s performance.
Educational assessment and psychological evaluation can be useful in order to help determine specific struggles students are experiencing in school. Children may struggle academically for a variety of different reasons including poor attention, memory problems, or processing deficits. These can all impact a child’s ability to learn.
We are experts in providing comprehensive psychological evaluations. We are able to conduct evaluations for learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, processing disorders, and ADHD.
Evaluations may be comprised of intelligence testing, achievement testing where we compare your child’s levels in reading, math and written language to national norms as well as process testing. Process testing may include assessment of a child’s long term memory, short term memory, visual processing, auditory processing and processing speed skills, which allows us to see a snapshot of exactly how your child may learn best.
We can help consult with your child’s teacher and other school personnel to develop supportive school interventions and services, including 504 plans. Our goal is to produce recommendations to help you advocate for your child and ultimately improve their academic performance.
If you have concerns regarding your child‘s learning or social needs, please call us today at (727) 379-1982.
