Psycho-Educational Assessment: Our psycho-educational assessment battery involves a comprehensive set of assessments to help gain a holistic understanding of a child or adolescent's current level of functioning. Each assessment battery is uniquely tailored to your child and typically examines the following areas: intelligence, learning preferences, visual-motor abilities, self-concept, mood, behavior, and relationships.
Developmental Assessment: We conduct a multi-dimensional assessment that is specifically designed to help parents, educators, and professionals understand characteristics of a child's behavior in relation to typical growth patterns. It encompasses a child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. This information can be helpful in determining whether or not a child is ready to start Kindergarten.
Other Psychological & Diagnostic Assessments: Psychological and diagnostic assessments are used to create a batter understanding of an individual's current level of functioning. Assessment results can aid in the determination of a correct diagnosis and/or guide the treatment process. Assessments are often used to assess for Autism Spectrum Disorder, anxiety, depression, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and many others.
