About Psycho-Educational Assessment

What is a Licensed Educational Psychologist?

As a Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP), Brent Cooper is thoroughly trained in both psychology and education. He is also authorized to perform functions pertaining to the academic learning process.

One of the advantages of using his services as a Licensed Education Psychologist is that you get a valuable perspective into the evaluation and intervention process. He has spent over 15 years working within the school system.

What Does A Psychological-Educational Assessment Involve?

The purpose of the evaluation process is to discover why there is a problem. Once the problem is identified, a specific treatment plan is designed, including strategies and interventions, which are tailored to the precise needs of the child. This ‘game plan’ is then discussed with the family at the final feedback session, which includes a comprehensive report.

Over the years, we are proud to have helped hundreds of students reach their full potential. We help by providing the families of these youngsters with the tools and resources, that are needed to succeed.
