Psychological & Developmental Testing
Why get tested?
Children do not progress evenly in all areas of development. Your child may be advanced socially but delayed in math. Another child may have excellent cognitive intelligence and delayed emotional intelligence. When we fully understand specific strengths and weaknesses, we can establish tailored treatment suggestions. These treatment suggestions will provide you a “road map” to know what skills need to be practiced with consistent positive reinforcement and what skills need to be encouraged as strengths.
During psychological assessments, we evaluate a client’s psychological, social, emotional, and behavioral well-being through open dialogue and formal testing. The assessment process will involve both of the following to identify the individual’s strengths and needs:
- A series of face-to-face interviews where we meet with the client (and sometimes his/her family members) to gain a rich understanding of the client’s emotions, behaviors, thoughts, and coping strategies.
- A series of standardized tests (both verbal and written) to gain more objective and data-driven insights regarding a client’s overall well-being.
