A psychoeducational assessment is a formal assessment that addresses a number of possible learning barriers. In most cases, psychoeducational assessments consist of three main components:
- a cognitive assessment (which includes an IQ test)
- academic testing
- a mental health/behavioural component
These assessments provide the most comprehensive evaluation related to learning. They can be used to address and diagnose many possible issues, including ADHD, learning disorders, cognitive delays, anxiety, behavioural issues (e.g., Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder), depression, trauma and related disorders, and other concerns.
