What’s ADHD assessment?
You have probably suspected it for a long time, but never got tested. You know the struggles with organization, keeping on track and following the plan. Your school may not have offered the testing. Maybe your parents just didn’t believe in ADD / ADHD. But now, you want to find out for sure and look at your treatment options. We offer a comprehensive battery of tests that incorporate your history, current symptoms and functioning, and any other possible explanations or contributions to your difficulties. We’ll use the most current technology available in the testing process.
What’s Learning Disability (LD) assessment?
Reading, math or writing may have been a struggle for as long as you can remember. You may have hated tests because of it. Teachers may have noticed your difficulties or used the term dyslexia in reference to you. If you’ve never been tested for a learning disorder, you now have the chance. It doesn’t have anything to do with your intelligence. It would just mean that you’ve been unable to make full use of your abilities. Our state-of-the art computerized testing is thorough and will look at your ability and performance as well as any other issues contributing to your difficulties.
What’s Autism / Autism Spectrum Disorder assessment?
You or your loved one may have always had trouble maintaining eye contact, had trouble reading faces, tones or gestures, reacting unusually to sights, sounds, and textures. As children, these symptoms can profoundly affect academic performance, peer relationships and mental health. As adults, they can cause similar difficulties, but now also affect work. Our comprehensive assessment process results in a detailed report, with diagnosis and recommendations. This is often used in the schools or by a physician as a basis for adjustments to educational strategy, for academic accommodations, or for medication.
What’s dementia assessment?
You may be concerned seeing noticeable changes like increased confusion, forgetting more than usual, getting lost, or acting out of character. You may be wondering whether you or your loved one may be able to live alone. No one wants to receive a diagnosis of dementia, but early detection can lead to earlier treatment and better outcomes. A thorough cognitive assessment is the starting point for the important life you may need to make.
What other types of assessment do you offer?
We provide other types of services including police officer/security officer screening evaluations and personality testing. We do not offer child custody evaluations. Other types of neuropsychological and/or personality testing may be available and must be tailored to the specific need. Let’s talk about what you’re needing and see if we can help!
Do you take insurance?
We do not take insurance. This comes with the advantage of not having to file a mental health diagnosis for you that remains on your medical record indefinitely. Your diagnosis and report are your property and your choice when or how to share them. However, if our clients choose to file with their insurance, we can easily provide you with a superbill, which is a detailed statement for insurance reimbursement. Depending on your plan, your insurance company may reimburse you directly. If you want to find out in advance, contact your insurance provider and ask about the process of reimbursing for out of network providers.
