Psychiatry | Psychotherapy | Psychological Assessment | Tele-Behavioral Health

Overview

Upon a referral, psychological assessments and testing services are conducted by a licensed psychologist or a psychology trainee. The results of these tests will help you better understand your own or your child’s diagnosis, identify strengths and weaknesses, and determine the emotional challenges that may be hindering optimal performance. A formulated treatment recommendation(s) will be provided.

Assessments for Accommodations

Students seeking assessments to determine eligibility for accommodations at schools, colleges, or universities, or for standardized testing are usually required by the authorities to have a comprehensive psycho-educational evaluation. This requires clinical interviews, review of school records, current ability testing, and standardized achievement testing all which can be administered by our designated clinical psychologists.
 
After the completion of each test, our psychologists will review your test results and provide accommodation recommendations based on those results. You will also receive a copy of your test results to take home.
 
If you are required to provide a more analytical analysis and written report, this can be provided as an additional service.

Written Reports

Written reports of consultations and/or psychological testing can be prepared by the designated psychologist to fit the needs of each patient. Patients seeking accommodations at school, universities, and for SAT, ACT, GRE, MCAT, LSAT, GMAT,  or professional credentialing tests are usually required to submit narrative reports according to specifications of the established guidelines.
