Psychoeducational Assessment

Description

Studies have shown that students with exceptionalities especially those diagnosed with intellectual disabilities struggle in the academic achievement (reading and math) compared to their age-matched controls (Van der Ven et al., 2011). However, there are mixed results were found with students with ADHD, ADHD does not affect the student’s achievement level, it affects their ability to get the information needed. Many receive 504 accommodation compared to getting services under IDEIA (US Department of Education, 2013). This will be a single-subject case study. This study examines academic level of an individual with ADHD. We will be administering three standardized tests to measure a student’s reading and math skills, and their overall level of academic achievement. We will also be conducting a total of six observations, a review of his cumulative folder and interviews with his general and special education teachers. We will analyze the standard scores from the test to gain a full picture of the student.
