Often, the first step toward academic, psychological, or behavior improvement is to understand the source of the problem. While the purpose of testing and assessment varies, it can be essential when attempting to identify an accurate diagnosis and provide educational and treatment recommendations for children, adolescents, and adults.
At the Counseling Group, we provide comprehensive psychoeducational, neuropsychological, and psycho-diagnostic evaluations that are individualized based on your specific needs. We will work with you to understand your particular concerns and choose a testing battery that will provide you with an understanding of the difficulties you are facing and their possible causes. Once we gather the assessment information, we will develop a personalized plan with specific recommendations to improve areas of weakness, capitalize on strengths, and set you or your loved one up for success.
For children and teenagers, testing is typically conducted when they are having trouble with learning/academic work, attention/concentration skills, behavior, relationships with peers, or emotional regulation.
Psychoeducational evaluations are effective in identifying:
- Learning Disorders or Difficulties (Reading, Writing, Mathematics)
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD /ADHD)
- The need for appropriate accommodations for an IEP, 504 Plan, or standardized exams (FSA, SAT, ACT, etc.)
- Intellectual Disability
- Mood Concerns (e.g., Anxiety or Depression)
- Behavioral Difficulties
- Speech/Language and Communication Disorders
- Memory Weaknesses
- Nonverbal Learning Disorder
Testing can also be extremely helpful with adults who may be struggling in different areas of their lives, most commonly due to problems with interpersonal relationships, work, or academics. Adult evaluations are often used to clarify an existing challenge or diagnosis that was never addressed in childhood or to provide updated documentation for a disorder for which you have been previously diagnosed.
If you have any questions about the evaluation process or would like more information to determine if testing is right for you or your loved one, please call our office to schedule a complimentary 10-minute phone consultation.
