A comprehensive educational, neuropsychological, and/or psychological evaluation is a fundamental part of gaining insight into an individual’s developmental, academic, behavioral, and social-emotional strengths and weaknesses. Assessment measures are tailored to a client’s needs and are able to provide a plan for future action and treatment. Moreover, testing provides essential data points to measure an individual’s growth and progress over time.
The evaluation process includes the following core components:
Intake Session-Caregivers meet with the psychologist to discuss the needs and concerns. If appropriate, the client is able to participate in this session. Prior to the appointment, caregivers are asked to complete the Child and Adolescent Diagnostic Intake Formand the Intake Packet, as well as bring educational records, such as Individualized Educational Programs (IEP), 504 Plans, report cards, school disciplinary records; pertinent medical records; and any prior evaluations.
Comprehensive Evaluation-An individualized battery of tests will be administered to the client. Testing is generally completed in 2-3-hour blocks over several days, yet this may be adjusted depending on what is appropriate given the client’s age, developmental level, and ability. When applicable, information will also be obtained from additional sources, including therapists, teachers, and medical professionals.
Feedback Session-During a feedback session, results of the evaluation, recommendations, and treatment plan are discussed.
