Psychological Assessment & Evaluation

Adults, Adolescents, and Children 

Psychological Assessment refers to the battery of tests administered to evaluate your intellectual, learning, emotional and/or behavioral functioning. The test battery varies depending upon the referral question(s), and includes a structured interview, assessment of intellectual capability, learning/processing measures, measures of attention and memory, academic achievement measures, projective measures, self-report surveys, parent and third party checklists, and possibly in vivo observations. Testing sessions are typically scheduled during the morning when most people function at their best

Approximately three weeks after the testing, you will return to the office for a follow-up session to discuss your results and recommendations specific to you. The follow-up appointment generally takes between 45 and 90 minutes. At the follow-up appointment, the psychologist will review the testing results, discuss recommendations, and answer any questions you may have. You will be provided with a written report during the follow-up session or within one week of the appointment. The report provides a written record of the testing that was completed, along with some specific recommendations to help you towards achieving your goals. You may be asked to sign a release so that the report can be sent directly to specific professionals working with you.
