This information on cognitive development includes emotional tendencies, strengths and limitations in problem solving, and any underlying cognitive issues that may be contributing to problematic behaviors in a social, occupational, or academic setting.

Results from psychological testing can guide the therapeutic process by uncovering an issue and using objective measures to identifying the most efficacious form of therapy.

The most common testing we offer is educational testing.

After undergoing a battery of psychological tests, the individual and their family will meet with the psychologist to review results.

These results can then be used to guide therapy or help clarify any academic or occupational needs of the individual.
