What does a psychological evaluation consist of?
The purpose of a psychological evaluation is to address the specific area(s) of concern. Therefore, there is not a standard battery of tests used for every evaluation given. Instead, the evaluation will be tailored to address the specific concerns. Based on the area of concern(s), a variety of assessment instruments may be used to measure your child’s general intelligence; cognitive processing skills; individual academic achievement; emotional and/or behavior functioning; and/or self-concept measures. Additional information might be gathered including, but may not be limited to, developmental history, adaptive functioning rating scales, interviews and/or specific behavioral observations. Generally, assessment sessions can take 1-3 sessions depending on the referral concern(s), and each session can typically last from 1.5-2 hours. After the assessment, scoring, and testing analyzes are completed, there is a meeting to discuss testing results, recommendations, and answer any questions. After this meeting, a comprehensive written report of the testing results and specific recommendations will be generated within approximately two weeks.
