Psychological evaluations are a crucial component to treatment planning. We often recommend an evaluation, especially if this is your first time coming in to our office. Evaluations help us determine appropriate diagnoses, develop appropriate treatment plans, coordinate care with other professionals, and provide insight as to what may be underlying a particular problem.
Psychological evaluations assess whether the symptoms that someone is experiencing might be explained by a psychological diagnosis. An evaluation may also describe or explain the general psychological adjustment problems being presented by an individual, in an effort to understand the individual's behavior.
Psychological tests are designed to examine a variety of cognitive abilities, including general level of cognitive functioning, memory, visual-perceptual-motor skills, speed of information processing, attention, language, and executive functions, which are necessary for goal-directed behavior. Educational evaluations are used to assess for academic difficulties, giftedness, or to help evaluate the basic academic skills of candidates for employment or promotion. In addition, the comprehensive version can be administered to assist with diagnosis of learning disabilities, to help design learning interventions, or to make educational program placement decisions.
A comprehensive neuropsychological, psychological, or educational evaluation may take several hours, or even several days, depending on the problems being assessed, and the reason for the assessment. Each evaluation is tailored to the specific needs of the person and the questions that are being asked.
We offer numerous types of evaluations including:
- Neuropsychological Evaluations
- Psychological Evaluations
- Educational Evaluations
- Diagnostic Screenings
If a previous evaluation has been conducted, please bring a copy of that evaluation to your first appointment. It is helpful to see what previous evaluators may have found in the past.
