Psycho–Educational Evaluations consist of a battery of tests that will provide information on a child's overall abilities, particularly learning style, information processing abilities, and academic skills. A significant part of this assessment is the IQ test which helps to identify the student's strengths and weaknesses. It provides information regarding a child's ability to process verbally and visually presented information as well as his or her overall intellectual potential. Considerable additional information is derived relating to sequencing abilities, short and long–term memory issues, language functioning, and processing speed. During the assessment, specific tests can also be completed to evaluate a child's cognitive abilities, such as memory and organizational skills.

In addition to testing data, the evaluation may include a clinical interview as well as questionnaires and rating scales completed by parents, teachers, and the child.  This data help to identify whether attentional and emotional issues might be contributing to or resulting from the learning difficulties.
