Diagnostic Evaluations

Psychological testing aims to assess a broad array of constructs including intelligence, academic abilities, neuropsychological, and emotional functioning. The information gained is used for indicating differential diagnoses and to assist in the development of treatment plans, or determining effective educational interventions.


Testing can be referred by clinicians, physicians, neurologists, parents or school personnel. Reasons for referral to testing often include concerns with an individuals rate of development, declining or delayed academic skills, specific concerns with the ability to sustain attention or fully utilize memory functioning. Neurologists and Physicians also commonly make specific referrals for neuropsychological evaluations following head injuries or when there is suspicion of a developmental disability or degenerative disease. All psychological and diagnostic evaluations are performed by psychometricians who are licensed psychologist with specific training and experience in diagnostics
