ASSESSMENT/TESTING

Psychological Assessments are evaluations of our behavior and function using several methods of testing to develop a comprehensive view of the concern.  Assessments are performed by a Licensed Psychologist over at least two appointments (commonly 3 or 4).  Often the Psychologist asks others in your environment (parents, partners, teachers, etc) to complete questionnaires to provide additional input for consideration in diagnosing the issue.  Once all assessment measures are completed, the data is combined to answer the question which brought you in, provide a diagnosis, offer recommendations, and additional resources.  In the feedback session, your provider will review the assessment report with you, answer all your questions, determine if any revisions are required, and deliver two signed copies.  We advise that you keep an original copy for your records and reproduce as needed, however additional copies may be requested from our agency should a need arise.
