Finding the Right Assessment

Our assessments include holistic evaluations of emotional, behavioral, social, adaptive, and cognitive functioning. Testing can also include academic testing to identify educational learning styles and disorders. There are three primary assessment packages that are offered. Selecting a plan is determined by age and the reason for referral. We offer Comprehensive, Targeted, and Autism evaluations. 

There are no plans available.

Comprehensive

Areas to be assessed include: cognitive; learning; attention (visual and auditory); learning and memory (visual and auditory); social and emotional functioning; visuospatial functioning; language; sensory; and fine motor skills, as well as validity testing.

  • Intake/Clinical Interview 

  • A second standardized structured interview(s) 

  • Direct testing, which can take 4-6 hours total and can be split up over two sessions

  • Standardized questionnaires for caretaker(s) and/or teacher(s)

  • Consultation with another neuropsychologist or developmental psychologist 

  • Clinical interview with your child's therapist, and possibly others involved in your child's care, with your consent

  • A report, which ranges from 10-20 pages. Reports include a summary of results, recommendations, and a "data sheet," with test scores, which you can provide to the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team should you see fit

  • A review and summary (included in the report) of available records (e.g., medical history, IEP(s), and previous reports)

  • Occasionally, school or home observations are also conducted

  • Feedback session(s)

Targeted

In contrast to the comprehensive, a targeted approach examines a specific area (e.g., attention, social-emotional functioning). As such, areas to be assessed are specific to the referral question.

  • Intake/Clinical Interview 

  • A second standardized structured interview(s) 

  • In-person direct testing of your child, which can take approximately 2-4 hours 

  • Standardized questionnaires for caretaker(s) and/or teacher(s)

  • Clinical interview with your child's therapist, and possibly others involved in your child's care, with your consent

  • A report, which is typically 8-12 pages. Reports include a summary of results, recommendations, and a "data sheet," with test scores, which you can provide to an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team should you see fit

  • A review and summary (included in the report) of available records (e.g., medical history, IEP(s), and previous reports)

  • Feedback session(s)

Targeted Autism Testing

  • Comprises of a structured, “gold standard,” empirically-validated measure of ASD;

    direct observation of a child’s emerging cognitive, language & social skills in a flexible, play-based format

  • Includes a review of developmental history and collateral (parent and provider) report

  • Involves care, attention, and clinical perspective from a neuropsychologist with expertise in autism
