Comprehensive Psychological Assessments

A parent’s decision to have their child evaluated is an important one. Choosing a qualified provider to complete the evaluation is equally important.

  • comprehensive psychological assessmentsOur evaluations are comprehensive and include both psychological and behavioral evaluations
  • These evaluations are conducted by a licensed psychologist and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)
  • Testing is individualized and always conducted in a thorough, measured manner
  • We strongly believe that meeting the member on several occasions gives us a better understanding of their behavioral, emotional, academic and cognitive functioning
  • Diagnoses of specific psychiatric disorders or developmental delays are made when clinically appropriate

There are a number of reasons why parents and schools request an evaluation for a child’s development, learning styles and emotional and behavioral functioning. Testing can be done to provide diagnostic clarification regarding:

  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Learning disabilities (i.e., dyslexia, nonverbal, processing, etc.)
  • Autism spectrum disorders (Autism, Asperger’s and Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS))
  • Disruptive behavior problems (Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, etc.)
  • Mood disorders (Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar)
  • Social skills/functioning
  • Study skills, organization and executive functioning
  • Early childhood and developmental concerns

Upon completion of the testing, extensive time is spent interpreting and explaining the results of the written report, which serves as a guideline for treatment to help members succeed within a variety of settings.

  • It can be difficult to know whether or not a child needs an evaluation
  • If you are unsure, an initial Parent Interview and History consultation can be set to assess if evaluation is needed
  • The initial interview fee is applied to the testing fee if testing is recommended
  • Such testing and recommendations can also serve as the basis for requesting special education services and aid in the development of the member’s Individual Education Plan (IEP)
