Psychological Evaluations

Our staff of Certified Pennsylvania School Psychologists are uniquely trained to complete the student evaluations required for special education eligibility as identified in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Our psychologists possess an advanced level of knowledge and experience regarding the assessment of students with complex needs, providing comprehensive evaluations, and reevaluations to guide the student’s educational team. 

All of our special education programs have psychologists assigned to support a positive and proactive approach to student behavior, to provide comprehensive evaluation services, and to assist with prevention, intervention, and crisis management.

Teamwork for Student Success

All students enrolled in special education programs must have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) developed by a designated team of educators and service support providers, and based on evaluations and observations. Our psychologists collaborate with the student’s IEP Team to ensure that the psychological needs they identified in their evaluations are integrated. 

Our Psychologist follow the guidelines set forth by the National Association of School Psychologist (NASP) and the American Psychological Association (APA).
