Psychological Assessment / Testing
A psychological evaluation consists of a battery of tests administered in a standardized manner by our child psychologists to answer one or more of the questions being asked. Concerns might include level of intelligence, Learning Disorders, academic functioning, memory, ADHD, Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD) and/or emotional well-being among others. Tests are also administered to document gifted levels of functioning and early kindergarten readiness. Testing is designed to help identify strengths and weaknesses of an individual and will frequently lead to recommendations for academic, behavioral and family intervention. The specific standardized tests which are selected and administered are tailored to the individual needs of your child.
Generally children are tested in two or more 2 hour blocks which most find enjoyable. After the formal testing, the psychologist scores and analyzes the results then prepares a written report of the findings. When the parents come in for an interpretative session, they are given a summary of the findings along with a written report.
