Evaluation Center Services

Clients are evaluated to establish a learning, behavioral, and/or psychological profile in order to recommend the most appropriate accommodations and remediation. The SEC conducts psychoeducational, neuropsychological, and psychological evaluations. The professionals conducting the evaluation will determine what tests should be administered according to the needs of the individual being evaluated. Four types of evaluations are administered:

  • A psychoeducational evaluation assesses learning difficulties and may include measures of intellectual/cognitive ability, attention, auditory and visual processing, oral and written language ability, fine and gross motor development, memory, executive functioning, visual-spatial ability, and academic skills. If needed, neuropsychological measures will be included in this battery. Further, we may also screen for anxiety and/or depression.

  • An Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluation assesses more specific social and behavioral difficulties and may include measures of social communication, behavior, and social skills. If needed, we may also screen for anxiety and/or depression.

  • An evaluation specific to the diagnosis of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) focuses solely on ADHD and is conducted over a half day. It includes intelligence testing, a structured interview, behavior rating scales, a continuous performance test, and a brief written report. If problems beyond the ADHD symptoms are noted during this evaluation, further testing may be recommended.

  • A psychological evaluation assesses personality and behaviorally difficulties and may include a battery of emotional, personality, and behavioral instruments.
