psychological Testing

 

Evaluations differ from patient to patient, depending on the reason for the evaluation, the age, and presenting problems of the individual. They can cover such areas as:

  • Intelligence
  • Executive Functions (such as attention, impulsivity, planning, organization, time management, self-monitoring, and flexibility)
  • Objective Testing for Attention and Concentration
  • Memory and Learning
  • Visual Perceptual and Spatial Skills
  • Sensory and Motor Functions
  • Academic Achievement (in all skill areas appropriate for the age and grade of the individual)
  • Behavior and Adjustment
  • Personality and Emotional Status

Some abilities are measured in greater detail than others, depending on the person’s needs. And additional information is obtained from the family.  With parental approval and consent, information may also be obtained from the school, therapists, or physicians.
