Psychological Testing

Psychological evaluations use a series of tests to assess various areas of cognition and behavior. These areas include memory, attention, learning, processing speed, and abstract reasoning.

 

This data is processed to provide information on the impact of any identified areas of difficulty and how they may affect a person's everyday functioning.


Included in an evaluation of a child, for example, is a detailed investigation of the child's developmental, medical, social, and psychological history. This is in addition to an extensive battery of tests that examines intellectual, academic, memory, attention, executive functioning, language, visuospatial, visuoconstructional, and fine motor skills.

The results of a psychological assessment are intended to identify both intellectual and learning difficulties as well as any other cognitive or psychological difficulties that may be a contributing to a child's or adolescent’s personality profile.

Our Psychologists use psychological evaluations to provide patients with the most comprehensive assessments possible, defining a path to a treatment plan that is tailored to and crafted specifically for each patient.
