DC Fagan Psychological Services, LLC offers a variety of evaluation services including IQ, Psychoeducational, academic, ADHD, and School Neuropsychological testing.
At DC Fagan Psychological Services all testing is done individually by a licensed psychologist using current, comprehensive and standardized tests.
A Psychoeducational evaluation includes both an IQ test and an achievement test. It is completed in order to determine whether a specific learning or other disability may be impacting significantly on a student’s academic performance.
In many school districts in New Jersey and New York, a discrepancy between a student’s IQ and their academic scores is used as a criterion for provision of special education services by the school district.
IQ testing tells us the overall cognitive potential of an individual and can give parents the information they need to help understand their child’s strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. The results can be used to help identify students for gifted programs, children with learning weaknesses, and assist with educational planning.
