Psychological Assessment Services

Assessment Services are billable to you and your child/families extended insurance.

We offer the following assessment services. Each session is 50 - 55 minutes. The provided hours are a rough estimate.

Complexity of assessment is based on your reasons for seeking an assessment. Assessments include assessment of individuals in multiple environments (school, home, in-person (observation), or work). All assessments receive a debriefing session to discuss the results.
