Comprehensive Evaluation

A comprehensive psychological evaluation is useful when academic, cognitive, social-emotional, and/or behavioral concerns arise. The purpose of an assessment is to provide deeper knowledge of an individual's unique profile of strengths and weaknesses. It can illuminate the ways a person learns best, while also identifying what is getting in the way of reaching their fullest potential. Furthermore, it can be helpful for treatment planning, connecting to appropriate supports, and guiding future steps.

A comprehensive evaluation at KPS is always tailored to an individual's unique needs. We can evaluate for a variety of diagnoses, including autism, ADHD, learning disorders, intellectual disability, brain injury, co-occurring mental illness, and more. 

 

A comprehensive evaluation can include the   following components : 

- Cognitive (IQ) Testing - 

- Academic (Achievement) Testing - 

- Adaptive Testing - 

- Diagnostic Testing (e.g., Autism-specific measures) - 

- Symptom Questionnaires - 

- Clinical Interviewing - 

- Parent Interviewing -

- Consulting with Teachers, Therapists, etc. -

- Feedback -

- Final Report -

Next, we will schedule one full, in-person testing day with one of our licensed psychologists.  You will be asked to complete some pre-appointment paperwork.

 On testing day, you and/or your child will be asked to do a variety of different tests and activities. The specific tests will be selected based on your unique needs and questions.

 You and your psychologist may need to schedule follow up testing and interviews. For tasks that don't require you to be in person, we offer these virtually or in person.

 Once all of the testing is complete, you and your psychologist will schedule a feedback session to go over the results of the evaluation. Following this, you'll receive thorough written report with the results, diagnoses, and recommendations.
