Educational & Psychological Testing

At Family Psychological Services, we understand that a thorough understanding of your mental health and cognitive capabilities is crucial to effective treatment and personal growth. Our comprehensive educational and psychological testing services are designed to provide you with the insights and guidance you need to address behavioral and learning challenges.

Our evaluations are both practical and concise, delivering specific information that enhances your treatment planning, facilitates a differential diagnosis, and establishes a baseline for evidence-based interventions and measurable results. We gather historical data, identify clinical markers, and utilize valid symptom checklists and standardized tests to differentiate various neurocognitive problems, including ADHD, depression, anxiety, bipolar disease, Alzheimer's disease, misbehavior, learning disabilities, and autism spectrum disorders.

Tailored Assessments for Enhanced Understanding

Our educational and psychological testing services encompass a wide range of evaluations, each tailored to address specific areas of concern. Here are some of the key evaluations we offer:

  • Psychological and Diagnostic Evaluations: Our differential diagnosis approach helps identify the underlying factors contributing to difficulties in socializing or focusing at school, work, or home. We assess cognitive and behavioral development, auditory and visual processing, memory, personality, intelligence, social intelligence, motivation, and analytical abilities.

  • ADHD and ADD Assessment: We use standardized tests to objectively evaluate and diagnose ADHD and ADD. If diagnosed, we provide family and/or individual counseling, recommend changes in the learning environment, offer behavioral therapy, and make referrals for medication consultation when appropriate.

  • Learning Disabilities Evaluation: If your child faces challenges in school, we conduct extensive diagnostic testing to assess potential learning disabilities, including dyslexia, memory impairments, language difficulties, and more. We can also help determine eligibility for IEP or 504 interventions at school or accommodations for standardized tests like the GRE, LSAT, or ACT.

  • Academic Problems & School Placement: Our team addresses a wide range of academic issues, from poor study skills and bullying to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and motivation. We guide you in selecting the right school for your child based on their unique values and aptitudes and assist with accommodations for college or professional school entrance exams.

  • Mood and Personality Disorders Assessment: We evaluate inherited mood disorders like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disease, offering a combination of medication, cognitive-behavioral therapy, self-soothing techniques, and stress management to stabilize and correct these conditions. Additionally, we address personality development issues such as borderline personality and narcissism, often linked to early childhood trauma, poor attachment, abuse, neglect, and loss.

  • Gifted Placements and Intelligence Testing: Our comprehensive IQ testing helps identify both strengths and areas of weakness. If your child is gifted, we work with you to create a nurturing and stimulating environment that fosters their intellectual growth and development in alignment with their heightened intelligence.

At Family Psychological Services, our educational and psychological testing services empower you with knowledge and insights to make informed decisions about your mental health and cognitive abilities, paving the way for personal growth and well-being.
