How can psychological assessment be helpful for children?
Psychological assessment is very helpful in understanding the strengths and challenges children may have in their cognitive, behavioral, and emotional functioning.
The psychological assessment process allows diagnostic clarity and individualized recommendations and treatment. Often, children who are struggling with academic work, social interactions, and emotional regulation have atypical neurological development that can be identified through psychological assessment.
This enables parents, teachers, and therapists to provide proper intervention and accommodations needed to allow each child to reach their full potential.
