The Georgia Tech Counseling Center (GTCC) provides psychoeducational screenings for currently enrolled Georgia Tech students. This service may be appropriate for students who are having difficulties with academic performance, learning, or concentration, and who may be interested in a professional assessment. Before requesting this service, please read our Guide to Psychoeducational Assessment.
The purpose of a psychoeducational screening is to screen for a variety of conditions and to determine whether more in-depth assessment is warranted. Often, our screenings are sufficient to identify the factors that are contributing to the problem, and to make helpful recommendations. However, screenings are not sufficient to assess for eligibility for disability accommodations, which requires a full assessment. For this reason, some students may want to skip our screening and be referred to a professional who can provide them with this service.
If you choose to do a screening, you will complete a set of questionnaires and meet with a member of our assessment team for an interview and a feedback session. You may also be asked to obtain any educational and testing records that may be available, such as old report cards and transcripts, and standardized test result records. The total time commitment is about 2-3 hours, and there is no charge.
To schedule a screening, please stop by the center and complete the initial paperwork for a consultation appointment.
After a student has completed a psychoeducational screening, in some cases we may be able to complete a full psychoeducational assessment. If the student meets criteria for educational accommodations and wishes to obtain them, the psychoeducational assessment report can be provided to the Georgia Tech Office of Disability Services.
