Psychological evaluations can provide information to help identify current problems, determine whether treatment is needed, and provide recommendations on the types of treatment most likely to be effective. It can also provide documentation needed to obtain services and support. We conduct evaluations for a broad range of presenting issues, including ADHD, learning difficulties, traumatic stress, anxiety, mood problems, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and disruptive behaviors.
Psychological Evaluations for Children
A psychological evaluation is a process of integrating information about a person’s thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and relationships. We gather this information from sources such as school and health records, interviews with the patient and others who know the child well (such as family member and teachers), direct observations of behavior, and one-on-one standardized tests. This process can usually be accomplished with one full day of testing, but will occasionally require a family to return for a follow-up testing appointment. Patients and families will receive in-person feedback and a written report of the findings and recommendations.
