Many families struggle to support loved ones with difficulties ranging from learning to emotional issues without knowing what to do. Whether it be work, school or your personal life that is affected by these issues, psychological testing can uncover and/or confirm information valuable to maximizing your potential.
I specialize in several areas of psychological, psycho-educational and neuropsychological testing including: Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD etc. I offer detailed recommendations for accommodations that may mean the difference between "making the grade" or struggling with out support.
Testing can be relevant in requesting accommodations for the following settings:
•Standardized Testing (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, BAR etc.)
•School Entrance (preschool through college)
Depending on your specific situation, accommodations can range from additional time in testing to being provided with a notetaker in classes.
Some of the measures I use to assess individuals include: Wechsler Intellectual Tests, Woodcock Johnson Achievement Tests, Wide Range Assessment of Memory and Learning, Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS 2- the gold standard in autism testing), Neuropsychological Tests (D-KEFS), CPT II ( an objective, computer based test of visual attention most commonly used to diagnose ADHD), etc.
Each testing battery should be specific to the individual requesting it thus I value the creation of batteries that target your unique needs (which can also keep costs down). On the other hand, some are or more interested in learning more about themselves in general. In that case, I can complete broad assessments examining many different areas of your intellect and personality.
