Identifying Learning Strengths through Psychoeducational Assessment    
Brent MacDonald, Ph.D., Lead Psychologist,

Many students struggle with school for a wide range of reasons – it’s too hard, it’s not challenging enough, it’s too boring, it moves too fast…In any event, these issues can present at almost any age or grade and can cause parents and teachers a great deal of concern. A good psychoeducational assessment can, and should, help caregivers (including parents and teachers) better understand the specific pattern of strengths and challenges experienced by children and young adults. As adults, we tend to have an intuitive sense of our strengths, and we capitalize on these. We also tend to avoid engaging in areas in which we may not be as strong. In the school environment, students may not have this ability to choose, resulting in frustration, anxiety, and disengagement. This presentation will highlight the value of a good psychoeducational assessment in relation to enhancing the performance of students, with an emphasis on capitalizing on strengths. A particular focus on gifted students will be emphasized, as this model can work for a wide range of students.
