We speak briefly to all testing clients (or their parent/guardian) by phone prior to setting up an initial consultation appointment. Typically, the initial consultation appointment lasts 1 hour. We will discuss your questions and goals for testing, and review helpful background information. This information will be used to customize the evaluation so that we can answer your questions.
Depending on the referral question / goals of testing, the evaluation typically requires meeting for 2 hours (and up to 6-8 hours) to do a series of paper and pencil tasks and other types of thinking activities. These appointments can be scheduled in 2-hour increments, or over 2-3 appointments for longer blocks of time (based on scheduling availability ). The testing process includes:
At the end of the evaluation, we will meet for a feedback session. Test results can be confusing. We will take our time during the feedback session to go over the test results and the list of customized recommendations (which have been tailored to you or your child's needs). You will also receive a signed copy of the Test Report and a list of customized Recommendations during the feedback session. We are typically able to offer feedback within 2 weeks of completing the testing process.
If you have questions about testing or would like more information, please contact our office.

Neuropsychological / Psychoeducational testing is used to gain a better understanding of a person's cognitive, academic and/or emotional functioning.

Testing provides information about a person's strengths and weaknesses in some of the following areas:
