Psychological and Psycho-educational Testing
Testing begins with a referral question: What is it that you, your doctor, psychiatrist, school, and/or therapist are looking to answer? This may include and is not limited to diagnosis (ADHD, mood disorder, anxiety, learning disability, neurological deficits, etc.), assessment of strengths and weaknesses, treatment recommendations, disability assessment, etc. From there, your clinician identifies various tests that will help answer these questions. The amount of tests used and the length of administration determines the cost of the evaluation. Testing usually occurs over 2 to 3 sessions, ranging from 1 to 3 hours each session. Allow 2-3 weeks following the last day of testing for test interpretation and report writing. A follow-up session is scheduled to review the results of testing.
