Psychological Tests are administered by our trained clinical staff over the course of multiple sessions, and varies based on the type of testing being requested. After the testing has concluded the client meets with the testing clinician where they receive a report with the therapists findings and recommendations, and have their questions answered.
Diagnostic Assessment vs. Psychological Assessment
Many people use these terms interchangeably. However, they are not the same. Tests and assessments are two different tools used in a psychological evaluation.
Every client who comes to our office receives a diagnostic assessment as part of their first session. During the diagnostic assessment the therapist asks a series of questions about your psycho-social and biological history. Your answers help your clinician identify areas of treatment and symptoms which could lead to a diagnosis.
With psychological testing a trained professional administers either an individual evidence based test or battery of tests which are then scored and interpreted by the test administrator. These tests are used to assess a clients challenges and abilities in their area of concern.
