Psychological testing is intended to answer specific questions, such as:
- I’ve read about ADHD (learning disabilities; Asperger’s disorder, etc.) and think it describes me. Do I have ADHD (a learning disability, Asperger’s, etc.)?
- My elderly mother seems to have increasing memory problems; what are her problems and how can I deal with them?
- My spouse or parent’s behavior has changed all of a sudden; What’s going on?
- I hate my job. Should I be doing some different kind of work?
- What kind of treatment program is best for my drug abusing daughter?
- Do I qualify for special testing accommodations for the (MCAT, GRE, LSAT, etc.)?
Where do we start?
You might have been referred for an evaluation by a physician, a therapist, a teacher, an attorney, or employer, or you may have referred yourself. The first step is to get perfectly clear as to the purpose of the evaluation. Who will read the report? What will the results be used for? Once that is determined, I can select the appropriate tests and measures to use to answer the questions. The report will be written with both the purpose of the testing and the intended reader(s) clearly in mind.
- Answers to referral questions are presented in plain, jargon-free language. You will come away with a useful, practical report that clearly explains the findings, and recommends specific ways the information can be of direct benefit to you.
- Clients can be tested in my office, at home, in the hospital, at the workplace, even in jail; wherever it’s most appropriate and convenient.
- Not all that clear what you want to learn from an evaluation or what might be involved? Call me at (240) 277-7800,
email me, or fill out and send me a Referral Form. I look forward to being helpful to you.
- If we decide to work together, I’ll ask you to fill out and bring with you the Client Information Form, read (and keep for your reference) the Welcome to My Practice letter , and sign the Consent for Services agreement.
