How can assessment services help my child/adolescent? The specific ways that an assessment (neuropsychological, psychological, or psychoeducational) can help your child/adolescent vary, depending on individual factors. An assessment can be helpful by establishing a detailed understanding of their areas of strength and difficulty, which can help to guide the structure of their environments at home, school, or the community. Sometimes, families find an assessment to be helpful in clarifying any diagnostic impressions, as well as any treatment resources that could help with their child's/adolescent's progress.
