Psychoeducational Assessment for Children:
Dr. Maloff provides educational assessments to help identify one’s learning strengths and weaknesses. This is accomplished through both intelligence and achievement based testing. Once a child’s parents and teachers are aware of their learning strengths and weaknesses, individualized educational plans can be developed to help a child to maximize his or her potential in the classroom. Dr. Maloff also uses psychoeducational testing along with clinical observation and assessment to identify ADHD in children. Learning Disorders can be complicated to assess, thus Dr. Maloff utilizes a multidimensional approach to accurately diagnose specific learning problems. Dr. Maloff combines his own clinical testing with teacher’s reports as well as parent’s report of the child’s behaviors across both situations and time. When all data is considered, a definitive and accurate diagnosis of a child’s learning style can be deciphered. After diagnosis, Dr. Maloff provides a report of the results and the ramifications for the child in an easy to read format that can be used by parents and teachers to help give the child their best chance to succeed academically.
