Comprehensive Testing & Assessments                 

Finding an accurate diagnosis:

A psychological evaluation seeks to understand and measure the way in which a person processes information and the potential source of their struggles. An accurate diagnosis from psychological testing is crucial in understanding and addressing cognitive, behavioral, and emotional difficulties. It can provide critical information about the underlying causes of these issues, which can then inform personalized treatment plans and interventions that are tailored to meet the unique needs of the individual. With an accurate diagnosis, individuals can receive the support they need to overcome challenges and achieve their full potential.

These assessments could include a review of medical records, school records, family history, interviews with teachers and school counselors, and consultation with your child's primary care physician. Once a child has undergone testing, their mental health specialist can work with family, friends, teachers, and doctors to better help the child.
