Our Evaluations

We offer a multitude of evaluations with the purpose of providing deeper knowledge of an individual's unique profile of strengths and areas of growth. Our assessments offer a thorough, evidence-driven evaluation of an individual's abilities and learning style, allowing us to develop customized educational and community treatment supports.

We offer a variety of types of evaluations  for autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, fetal substance exposure, learning disorders, giftedness, brain injury, seizure disorders, medically complex cases, intellectual disability, and mood disorders.

Neuropsychological Evaluations

A neuropsychological evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of your child or adult's functioning across these areas: 

  • General Intelligence / Cognitive Ability

  • Language

  • Visual-spatial skills

  • Learning and Memory

  • Attention & Executive skills (e.g., working memory; planning and organization; problem solving)

  • Motor skills

  • Academic achievement (e.g., reading, spelling, mathematics, writing)

  • Adaptive skills (i.e., daily living skills)

  • Social skills

  • Emotional and behavioral functioning


The results from the neuropsychological evaluation can help identify whether your child or adult is experiencing difficulties in learning or behavior that could be affecting their school or work performance, emotional well-being, and social interactions with peers. These findings may be used by your child's school to determine eligibility for academic accommodations in the classroom (e.g., a 504 Plan) or for personalized support (i.e., an Individualized Education Plan or IEP). In addition to academic support, our results can act as guides for clinical treatments and interventions.​

Targeted Evaluations

When a comprehensive evaluation is not needed, we are able to provide brief, targeted evaluations to answer a specific referral question. This is sometimes necessary in order to maintain state-supported community center board services, and/or to support acceptance into private school programsThese kinds of evaluations include: 

IQ  and Adaptive Testing

IQ Testing Only


Early Childhood Evaluations


Learning Disorder Only

School Kids

Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE)

KPS offers IEEs at the request of schools, parents, or legal guardians of children who are seeking an additional independent opinion to a previous school evaluation. These evaluations have a similar structure to our comprehensive evaluations and will include a select battery of tests that are individualized to the student's strengths and needs.


We work collaboratively with families, teachers, school counselors, and community providers, to understand the individual comprehensively. As these evaluations are paid for by the school district, results are provided to both families and schools.

What to Expect


Phone Intake

Give us a call at (303) 369-1777 or email us at to schedule a free, 15-minute phone intake with our office manager. During this call, we can help you determine if we are a good fit for you and/or your family. We can also discuss your insurance and/or payment options.  Please note: insurance companies vary widely on the types of evaluations that are covered. See our Rates & Insurance page for more information. 



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


Testing Day

 On testing day, you and/or your child will be asked to do a variety of different tests, activities, and questionnaires. The specific tests will be selected based on your unique needs and questions. In some cases, you and your psychologist may need to schedule follow-up testing. For tasks that do not require you to be in-person, we offer virtual options.


Parent/Teacher/Professional Input

Once the testing session is complete, your psychologist will take between 1-3 weeks to gather information from other individuals in you or your child's life. This includes interviews with you and any individuals that may have insight on you or you child (e.g., teachers, tutors, therapists, doctors, caregivers, etc.).


Feedback Session

Once all of the testing is complete, you and your psychologist will schedule a feedback session to go over the results of the evaluation. In this session, we will highlight the evaluation's results, including diagnoses, notable strengths or areas of growth, and some general recommendations.


Comprehensive Written Report

Within 2-3 weeks of the feedback session, you will receive a thoroughly written report detailing relevant background information, specific test results, diagnoses, and many recommendations.

KPS has a 48 hour no call-no show policy. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of your appointment and you miss your evaluation, we will not be able to reschedule your appointment.
