ADHD Testing, Autism Testing, Learning Disorder Evaluation, & so much more.

What is a Psychological Evaluation?

A psychological evaluation or assessment can be used to assess cognitive ability, social, emotional, or behavioral functioning, academic achievement, and personality. These evaluations can be used to answer questions about:

ADHD, anxiety, autism, depression, intellectual disability, learning disorders, trauma and PTSD, and so much more. 

The psychological evaluation is a process that includes the administration of assessment measures, clinical interview(s), scoring and interpreting the results, consulting with providers (e.g., current therapists), preparing the comprehensive written report, and time reviewing the results with clients and/or caregivers. The entire process takes approximately 4-6 weeks. Each evaluation includes a report that details and interprets the evaluation results and provides extensive recommendations for home, school, therapy, and/or any other appropriate interventions.

Prices/Fees

Pricing is transparent and simple.

We charge a flat fee for evaluations, which include intake interviews, administration of assessment measures, scoring and interpreting results, collateral contact (e.g., conversations with teachers, previous therapists, etc.), report writing, a feedback session, and the comprehensive report. There are no hidden fees. If you are looking for an evaluation that does not fall within these two categories, then please give us a call to see whether charging an hourly rate would work best for you and/or your family.

 

Payment for services is fee-for-service; we do not accept insurance. Clients can pay via credit card, debit card, or health savings card.  We do reserve a handful of reduced-fee evaluations based on financial status. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for that option, please indicate that below.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Will the evaluation assess ALL of those areas?

Our evaluations are comprehensive, yet tailored to your individual needs. If the purpose of the evaluation is to assess for learning disorders, then the evaluation will focus heavily on testing cognitive ability, educational achievement, and executive functioning, and we will screen for any emotional and/or social difficulties. If the concern is primarily emotional or behavioral-based, then our evaluation will focus on assessing those areas in detail, and educational achievement may only be screened, as an example. 

What is the waitlist for an evaluation?

There is no waitlist for evaluations! The intake appointment is typically scheduled 2-4 weeks after initial contact. If an individual needs an expedited evaluation, please indicate that below. There is a fee involved. 

What does the process look like?

The evaluation is scheduled in three parts:

  1. A 60-minute virtual intake appointment with the client or caregiver(s).

  2. The day of testing (approximately 6-8 hours).

  3. A 60-minute virtual feedback session to go over the results of the evaluation.

There are also things happening behind the scenes (e.g., scoring assessments, report writing, and contacting teachers or therapists). The entire process takes approximately 4-6 weeks. 

Is payment due immediately?

No, payment is typically split into three payments: There is a fee due on the day of the intake appointment, then half of the remaining balance is due on the day of testing, and the final half is due on the day of the feedback session. 

I think I have ADHD, why do I need a comprehensive evaluation?

Diagnosing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be more time-consuming and complex than taking questionnaires. Symptoms of ADHD also overlap with symptoms of other mental health disorders. For example, your difficulty paying attention could be due to ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma, etc. In addition, ADHD is often comorbid (or exists together) with other diagnoses. A comprehensive evaluation is recommended to provide accurate diagnos(es).
