At Hartmann & Hannan Center for Psychoeducational & Behavioral Services, we conduct individual standardized psychoeducational evaluations for a variety of purposes, including Gifted, Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Intellectual Disabilities. We will help you find the educational path for your child that is as unique as they are.
We also offer in-home Applied Behavior Analysis services in the greater Orlando area.
At the Hartmann & Hannan Center, we tailor our psychoeducational evaluations based on the unique needs of each individual. For that reason, the following descriptions are merely guidelines as to what a psychoeducational evaluation may look like for different types of concerns.
Utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), we offer the following behavioral services:
Functional Behavior Assessments
1:1 In-Home ABA Therapy
ABA services are implemented to reduce challenging behaviors, teach appropriate replacement behaviors and increase skills in the areas of communication, independent functioning, social skills, and more.
Depending on your child's specific behavioral needs and diagnosis, ABA services may be covered by your health insurance.

A gifted evaluation is conducted when it is suspected that an individual’s intellectual abilities may be significantly above their same-age peers. Gifted evaluations consist of an individually administered standardized assessment of intellectual ability, which can be completed in a single session. In addition to offering face-to-face gifted evaluations, we also offer virtual gifted evaluations. Contact us so that we may help you decide which option is best for you! Regardless of whether the evaluation is conducted in our office or virtually, families will receive a basic report that explains the assessment and scores.
Common learning disabilities are dyslexia (reading), dyscalculia (math), and dysgraphia (written language). Learning disabilities are identified through a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation, which assesses the individual’s overall intellectual ability, cognitive processing abilities (e.g. working memory, processing speed, fluid reasoning, etc.), and academic performance. Depending on the specific concerns, the evaluation may also include behavioral rating scales completed by the parents, child, and in some cases the child’s teacher. These evaluations are often completed during multiple office visits in order to avoid testing fatigue. After a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation is completed, families will be provided a detailed comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation report, which will include recommendations based on specific areas of weakness.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is characterized by difficulty with social communication, restricted interests, repetitive behaviors, and/or atypical responses to sensory input. Depending on the age of your child, an autism evaluation at the Hartmann & Hannan Center may consist of play observations, an interview with parents/caretakers, an interview with the child, behavior rating scales, a standardized test of intellectual ability, and a test of academic skills. Autism evaluations are typically completed during multiple office visits, and some behavior rating scales can be completed by parents/caregivers outside of office visits. Once an Autism evaluation is complete, families will be provided a detailed comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation report, which will include recommendations based on specific areas of weakness.
An Intellectual Disability evaluation is conducted when it is suspected that an individual’s intellectual abilities and adaptive skills are significantly below that of their same-age peers. An intellectual disability evaluation consists of a standardized assessment of intellectual ability, an assessment of academic skills, and a caregiver interview to gather information regarding social/developmental history and adaptive functioning. As with other types of evaluations offered at the Hartmann & Hannan Center, families will be provided with a psychoeducational evaluation report that includes recommendations based on specific areas of weakness.
There are three types of ADHD: Hyperactive/Impulsive, Inattentive, and Combined Type, which includes both hyperactivity and impulsivity. An ADHD evaluation consists of an interview with the parent/caregiver and completion of behavior rating scales by the individual, parent/caregiver, and teacher (if available). Depending on the presenting concerns, ADHD evaluations can be combined with other types of evaluations or can be conducted in isolation.
