Assessments

I offer psychological, psychoeducational, and psychovocational assessments for children, adolescents, and young adults.  Assessments might be accomplished in a single meeting or over the course of multiple days. The process of an assessment depends on the referral question. It often includes: an interview with the client, legal guardian, and other involved adults when appropriate; forms completed by the client, family, and/or educators; and standardized testing.

Assessments are helpful in identifying individual strengths and challenges such as:

  • Giftedness
  • Learning disabilities
  • Attention difficulties
  • Cognitive functioning
  • Developmental delays
  • Memory

Reasons for an assessment might include:

  • Qualifying for accommodations such as classroom and test accommodations
  • Qualifying for services or memberships such as Mensa, DSO, group home
  • Guiding treatment

If you are considering a psychoeducational assessment for your child, you may wish to pursue a referral to the school psychologist at your local school board. These services are often provided for free to students who qualify. Some families choose a psychologist in private practice to avoid long waiting times, keep information private, request a second opinion, or for access a psychologist with specific areas of expertise.
