Psychoeducational Evaluations

Our practice of licensed clinical psychologists offer comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults.  Our assessments are individualized and provide a thorough analysis of an individual’s cognitive and learning profile, including their relative strengths and weaknesses, in addition to addressing any presenting concerns.   The evaluations will explore a range of skills, including executive functioning, attention and concentration, learning and memory, and visual-motor integration, as well as social-emotional and behavioral functioning. 

Our practice is unique in that all aspects of our assessment process are conducted by our highly skilled group of clinical psychologists.  Our team has specialized school-based expertise and collaborative experience in working with school administrators, teachers, occupational therapists, and speech-language therapists.  Reservoir Mental Health clinical psychologists also have notable proficiency and experience in recommending academic accommodations and interventions that work in both public and independent schools, as well as with Individualized Education Programs (IEP).
