Psychological Assessments, IQ Testing, Educational Testing, ADHD Evaluations, and Personality Testing


Psychological assessment refers to the use of specially developed and researched tests that measure various mental abilities and attributes, including intellectual functioning, academic achievement, memory, attention, and personality traits. A formal psychological evaluation is not always needed, but it can be a useful diagnostic aid depending on the needs of the individual.

Types of psychological assessments I can provide include:

Intellectual Functioning and Cognitive Ability, Including IQ Testing

For children, academic achievement, ability, and intelligence testing, may be used as a tool in school placement, in determining the presence of a learning disability or a developmental delay, in identifying giftedness, or in tracking intellectual development. An IQ test is helpful for adults to determine vocational ability (e.g., in career counseling). An IQ test is also useful to assess adult intellectual ability in the classroom.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Testing

A formal ADHD evaluation is useful in determining whether a child's attention difficulties are truly caused by ADHD or whether other factors are causing the problems in focus and memory.  Many parents wonder if their child has ADHD and a formal assessment can help them in determining the best approach to dealing with their child's difficulties. 

Personality Testing

A personality test is administered for a wide variety of reasons, including diagnosing mental health problems (e.g., personality disorder, depressive disorder), understanding negative patterns in relationships with others, finding strengths which can help in building coping skills, and in finding interests and traits that can help guide career planning.

Testing Materials

All of the testing materials I use have been standardized and validated. Some of the tests I use are the:

Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale - 3rd edition (WAIS-III)
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - 4th edition (WISC-IV)
