Psychological Assessment

Psychological and Neuropsychological Testing

There are many circumstances in which our professional staff may suggest testing at some point in the treatment process. Our staff is trained in a variety of psychological testing instruments which may be utilized based on the reason for the evaluation.

Evaluations can be requested for some of the following reasons:

  • To determine an appropriate diagnosis

  • To generate appropriate and effective treatment plans

  • To serve as a second opinion for educational placement

  • To identify personality styles which may impact treatment progress

  • To determine if a learning disabilty exists

  • To clarify if a behavioral problem in school is due to psychological or learning problems

  • To determine what factors have led to a lack of treatment response

  • If a lack of concentration is due to intellectual, memory, or psychological problems

  • If a neurological problem is suspected

  • Repeated examinations at regular time intervals may help to provide reliable information about behavioral improvements or deteriorations associated with certain neurological conditions.
