"If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail."  Abraham Maslow

 

 

Psychological assessment refers to the objective measurement of psychological (cognitive, emotional, personality, etc) traits in order to help come to a decision about a person and their behavior. This can include whether they meet criteria for membership in a certain group (e.g. intellectual giftedness) or for a emotional, behavioral or cognitive disorder (e.g. ADHD, Learning Disorder, Autism, Postconcussion syndrome, Depression, Anxiety, etc). The type of assessment can vary depending on the reason for seeking psychological assessment:

 

Psychoeducational assessment consists of measuring the child’s intellectual level and current academic performance. Typically, this type of assessment is requested in order to compare the results for the purposes of determining if a learning disability is present. This assessment also includes suggestions for accommodating for the child’s learning disability if a disability is present. 

 

Neuropsychological assessment concerns the relation between brain and behavior. It covers multiple domains of functioning and offers recommendations that are individualized to the child based on their unique cognitive profile. Whereas the psychoeducational assessment can be informative as to whether a problem exists, a neuropsychological evaluation can explain why the problem exists and give more specific recommendations as to what should be done to fix it or accommodate for it.

 

Gifted assessment consists of a standard intelligence test. This assessment provides a quantitative measure of the child’s level of analytical intelligence, including both verbal and non-verbal intelligence. This type of assessment is typical sought when the goal is to plan for a child’s future academic placement, as a screener for the potential cause of academic problems, to qualify a child for advanced classes in school or to include the results as part of an application for admittance to exclusive educational opportunities. Our intelligence assessment instruments meet criteria for the testing required by such exclusive educational opportunities as the Stanford Institutes, Bridges Academy and the Davidson Institute. 

 

A psychodiagnostic assessment is designed to determine if a specific diagnosis is present (e.g. ADHD, Autism, etc). It can also be requested for the purposes of ruling out diagnoses when differential diagnoses exist (e.g. language disorder vs autism).

 

Career & occupational assessment evaluate the personality traits and interests of an individual in order to formulate specific occupational and educational choices that would be best suited for his or her unique profile. The evaluation also provides more clarity in regard to the vast number of occupations that exists in the United States and the types of training that are required.
