Understand and identify
Psycho-Educational assessments (sometimes also known as Cognitive assessments) are conducted by appropriately trained and registered psychologists. They are also sometimes referred to as IQ tests, depending on the reason for having this assessment. The testing would typically take place over 2 separate days, for 1.5 hours each day. The clinician will then need to score, interpret and write the report, which would be completed within 14 days, hopefully sooner.
In most cases, a Psycho-Educational assessment would be recommended when a child or individual is experiencing difficulties with; learning, reading, writing, memory, processing of information and executive function tasks. It may also be recommended where there are concerns relating to ADHD (inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity), either to assess for ADHD, or to have an updated assessment to determine progress. For children, schools will often require a cognitive assessment to have been conducted, as this will help the school understand the needs of the child and develop an Individualised Education Plan (IEP).
Some parents or individuals may request a Psycho-Educational assessment for understanding their IQ. It is always the right of the client to request for this assessment, and does not need to be conducted at the request of a clinician.
