A psychological/neuropsychological evaluation assesses key aspects of development and functioning including thoughts, emotions, mood, behavior, memory, interpersonal relationships, social skills, socio-cultural influences, physical maturation, and health. Integrating a psychoeducational evaluation into the evaluation helps identify the individual’s strengths and vulnerabilities around core academic areas.
This type of assessment evaluates the whole person to obtain a complete and integrated understanding of the individual in their environment. We place a primary focus on identifying the individual’s unique strengths, competencies, and potentialities. Recommendations are crafted to create a path that closes the gap between strengths and areas of vulnerability.

At Learning Solutions, we place high value on comprehensive evaluations in order to gain an understanding of as many aspects of an individual and their sociocultural context as is possible. We also acknowledge the limitations of the testing process, including standardized testing measures and the one-on-one nature of the testing environment.
We are actively expanding our knowledge about recent research concerning individuals socialized as female (AFAB) on the autism spectrum. While standardized testing measures will always be behind the need for clinical application, we are continuously seeking training and utilizing current best practices to sensitively discern ASD symptoms across gender identities, sociocultural contexts, and throughout the developmental lifespan.
Our comprehensive evaluations consist of a mixture of quantitative and qualitative data gathering along with thorough review of developmental history, clinical interview, treatment history, previous evaluations, self (depending on age) and observer report measures. Collateral reports from teachers, parents, social supports and/or other professionals are necessary to the testing process. In order to evaluate children and the difficulties that arise in the context of peers, we strongly suggest a school observation as part of these kinds of evaluations. Unfortunately, school observations are not covered by insurance.
