Behavioral evaluations are offered for young children (ages 3-6) to assess factors impacting a child’s behavior. These can include environment, social influences, emotional factors, development, and cognitive functioning. Parent feedback, teacher feedback, and child observations are included.
Our Licensed Psychologists and Licensed Specialists in School Psychology (LSSPs) provide psychological testing and evaluations for individuals of all ages. The evaluation process includes an intake appointment to discuss history and concerns, testing using evidence-based assessment tools, detailed comprehensive reports with recommendations, and feedback sessions to discuss results. Evaluation reports can be shared with pediatricians, psychiatrists, therapists, and schools to assist with treatment planning and academic accommodations. We offer several evaluation options to meet the needs of our clients.
Developmental evaluations (for ages 2 and older) provide helpful information about a child’s social, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive development. Cognitive (IQ) testing and semi-structured observational assessment (ADOS-2) is included. These evaluations assess for Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental delays.
Intellectual or cognitive testing provides information about a child’s cognitive abilities (verbal skills, nonverbal skills, working memory, processing speed). Intellectual evaluations can be used to identify giftedness and intellectual delays, as well as to inform school admission and placement.
Testing to diagnose ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is provided for individuals of all ages. These evaluations include computerized continuous performance tests as well as feedback from others (parents, teachers, spouses, supervisors). Emotional and behavioral assessments are included to rule out other factors that may be relevant.
Educational evaluations provide information about a child’s abilities, strengths, weaknesses, and academic level. These evaluations include cognitive (IQ) testing to assess verbal, nonverbal, working memory, and processing speed skills. Academic achievement testing assesses math, reading, and writing skills. Results can inform academic accommodations, admissions decisions, and educational placement.

These include attention, motivation, impulsivity, hyperactivity, executive functioning skills, emotional functioning, and social interactions. Cognitive (IQ) testing is also included to provide information about verbal, nonverbal, working memory, and processing speed skills.
