What is an Assessment Evaluation?
An assessment is a way for us to better understand a child or adult's unique strengths and areas of difficulty. Assessments take on many forms: interactive activities, paper-and-pencil tasks, visual puzzles, question-and-answer activities, background questionnaires, checklist surveys, and child/parent interviews, to name a few. We have assessments for very young children, as well as those appropriate for adolescents and older adults. By comparing someone's assessment results to that of same-aged children or adults, we can better understand where they thrive and where they may struggle and need extra support.
Combining assessment results and other information from multiple sources allows us to thoroughly understand who a person is and provide detailed recommendations for home, school, and community settings. This process also allows us to make accurate clinical diagnoses, which can be a means to start receiving helpful services and supports from schools and community agencies.

Two Day Comprehensive Psychological/Diagnostic Evaluation: This evaluation includes a review of the individual’s developmental history and relevant records, structured parent/caregiver interviews, all assessment administrations (tailored to the needs of the client and may include cognitive, diagnostic, adaptive skill, language, behavioral, neuropsych, and/or personality measures), feedback session, and the 10-20 page written report with recommendations. Our 2-day comprehensive evaluation comes to a total of $3010 ($500 deposit, $2510 final payment).
One-Day Psychological/Diagnostic Assessment: For individuals who do not require a comprehensive evaluation, we offer a one-day psychological assessment jointly conducted by licensed psychologists and doctoral student clinicians in clinical psychology. This abbreviated assessment is an option for individuals and families seeking diagnostic clarification and does not use the same comprehensive assessment battery of the two-day evaluation. This battery typically includes cognitive testing, autism-specific testing, a caregiver diagnostic/developmental interview, a behavioral/personality screening measure, and a written report with recommendations. Feedback is provided via a follow-up in-person or phone conference on a separate day. Our 1-day psych led assessment comes to a total of $1683 ($300 deposit, $1383 final payment).
One-Day Student Clinician-Led Psychological Assessment: Finally, we also offer a one-day student-led psychological assessment conducted exclusively by one of our advanced doctoral student clinicians, who is under the close supervision of a licensed psychologist. This battery typically includes cognitive testing, autism-specific testing, a behavioral/personality screening measure, and a written report with recommendations. This evaluation is only available to adults seeking assessment. Feedback is provided via a follow-up in-person or phone conference on a separate day. Our 1-day student led assessment comes to a total of $798 ($150 deposit $648 final payment).
