Comprehensive Psychological Assessment
Virginia Family Therapy offers comprehensive psychological evaluations (assessments) for children age six or older and adults of all ages. These include assessments for learning disorders, ADHD, academic achievement concerns, anxiety, mood disorders, and developmental delays. We also provide neuropsychological screenings as well as psychoeducational testing. The assessment process typically begins with an initial interview with the client and/or their parents. After testing, face-to-face feedback will be given by our clinician and a report will be provided.
Assessments can be helpful in communicating a student’s strengths and weaknesses to other providers and professionals in the student’s life. They are frequently required to identify ADHD and learning disabilities for Individualized Education Plans (often conducted by the schools), 504s, and/or accommodations for the SAT’s or colleges. They can also be used as additional information for physicians when managing an individual’s medication.
The entire assessment process from first visit to final feedback can take more than a month.
Admissions testing is often requested by private schools and consists of an IQ measure and sometimes educational or achievement testing in reading, written language, and math. Appointment times typically range from one to four hours.
