Testing Services


Learning Difficulties

Students may struggle in school for various reasons.  What may seem to be a child's resistance to a specific subject may actually be an unidentified learning weakness.  Testing can identifying any learning weaknesses that are impacting your child's academic performance, which then helps to create structured recommendations to improve learning.​  Help your child reach his/her potential and set them up for success in school.  


Attention &
Executive Functioning

Attention-Deficit is an issue with attention regulation and filtering out unimportant information in the environment.  Kids may exhibit inattention, hyperactivity/impulsivity, or both.  Testing can determine whether your child's learning and behavioral issues are the result of attention dysregulation and how it may be affecting their behavior at home and at school.  Many children with ADHD are misunderstood by their teachers and others, and often get disciplined for behavior out of their control.  With a better understanding of your child's neurocognitive profile you will be able to respond more effectively and gain a new perspective on what may have been seen as problem behaviors.  


Emotional Difficulties

A psychological evaluation can help parents and treatment providers gain a better understanding of a child's emotional concerns and how they may impact his/her learning and interpersonal relationships.  Issues related to anxiety, depression, and interpersonal issues are among those that can be identified with a psychological evaluation.  Test data can assist with treatment planning and care coordination.

What to Expect

"Testing" can be a scary word, so think of me as a detective who is trying to better understand how your child's brain works.  Your child will meet individually with me for several sessions, in the comfort of their own home.  You get the benefits of completing a comprehensive psychodiagnostic assessment without having to leave your home!  Puzzles, word games, pictures and drawings are used to investigate how your child thinks and feels.  Testing services include a school observation, parent interview, record review, consultation with various other professionals, test administration, a comprehensive report, detailed feedback session, a feedback session with your child's school, and any follow-up that may be needed.  Testing sessions may range from one to three hours, with several short breaks, depending on your child's energy level and attention span, but you never have to leave the house!  It is important that children be well-rested and well-fed prior to your appointment to make sure they are prepared for the various tasks to be completed.  Expect a warm, supportive relationship throughout this entire process!
