Psycho-educational Evaluations

Psycho-educational testing is our most comprehensive service and involves one-on-one, individualized assessment at our offices in Baltimore. We evaluate students from four years of age through college age for a wide variety of reasons. However, many of our clients fall into one of three categories:

  • gifted students who need greater challenge
  • bright students who are underachieving in school
  • twice-exceptional students

DCC licensed psychologists administer tests of intelligence, achievement, personality, cognitive processing, and/or social and emotional development, which can be used to evaluate and/or diagnose:

  • cognitive strengths and weaknesses
  • readiness for acceleration
  • specific learning disabilities
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (high-functioning)

In addition to the assessment, evaluations include:

  • a review of prior records
  • a written report with recommendations
  • a consultation session to discuss and interpret findings

Fees for psycho-educational evaluation depend on the complexity of the assessment battery necessary, but can range from $1,500 to $3,500. Financial aid is available; please contact us.

If you would like to pursue a psycho-educational evaluation, please download and complete the DCC Application Form for children or college students and return it to our office or contact us for further information.
