Psychological Evaluations are offered to assess the following:
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
- Anxiety, Mood, and Other Mental Health Disorders
- Learning Struggles (such as with language, reading, mathematics, written language, executive functioning)
What happens during an evaluation?
- Evaluations begin with an intake session that requires about an hour.
- If you/your child is 12 or younger, the first session is completed with parents only.
- Parents, teachers, and family members are often asked to complete rating scales regarding the individual's behavior and functioning.
- Evaluation time varies, but is usually completed over a two-day period of about 2-3 hours each day.
- The assessments utilized during an evaluation will depend on the referral question; often, an evaluation includes assessment of cognitive, executive functioning, academic, and social/emotional functioning.
- After the evaluation, the examining psychologist completes a report, which is then provided on or after the final feedback session with the individual and/or parents depending on age of the individual being tested.
- The final report will provide diagnostic information as well as recommendations for treatment and/or school accommodations.
Does Insurance Cover this Service?
I am not currently accepting insurance as payment for psychological evaluations. Cash, check, or card are accepted.
How to Prepare for an Evaluation?
- Prior to the evaluation, it is important to have had a good night's rest and a healthy breakfast.
- You (or your child) are encouraged to bring a drink (e.g., bottle of water) and a healthy snack.
