Commonly used tests include the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-III), the Woodcock-Johnson Psychoeducational Battery, the Peabody Individual Achievement Test-Revised (PIAT-R) and the California Verbal Learning Test (CVLT).
A psychoeducational assessment should be performed by a psychologist, psychiatrist, neurologist, neuropsychologist, or learning specialist.
Psychoeducational testing to determine IQ and/or the presence of learning disabilities may also be part of the evaluation process.
Children should have psychoeducational evaluation to help plan appropriate educational interventions.
IEPs are based on psychoeducational test findings.
