Specialty Evaluation Services
Psychological, developmental and educational testing to understand the individual strengths and needs of each child.
Types of Evaluation & Testing
Children often need a more formal assessment than a standard interview, to better understand their struggles and ensure that they get the best treatment available. We receive referrals to assess learning disorders, developmental delays, emotional and behavioral disorders, neurological injuries, and many more. We offer the following types of evaluations, tailored to the needs of each family.
Psychological testing and evaluation of children includes assessment of a broad range of cognitive, developmental, behavioral and emotional characteristics in order to identify treatment needs and make diagnostic decisions. Psychological tests are intended to assist school personnel and treatment providers (Primary Care Physicians, Pediatricians, Counselors, and others) by providing diagnostic accuracy and a detailed, objective look at the child's strengths, as well as needs. They are particularly helpful when complicated or rare problems and symptoms are present. Individualized recommendations for treatment and accommodations are provided.
