Assessments

We offer comprehensive psychological evaluations that are tailored to an individual’s needs.

Evaluations can provide the necessary documentation to warrant services for school and standardized tests (e.i. Extra time, minimal distraction, one-to-one support) or gain acceptance to gifted and talented programs.

The Exner scoring system, also known as the Rorschach Comprehensive System (RCS), is the standard method for interpreting the Rorschach test. It was developed in the 1960s by John E. Exner, as a more rigorous system of analysis. It has been extensively validated and shows high inter-rater reliability.

Note: The Rorschach test is a type of projective assessment in which subjects look at 10 ambiguous inkblot images and describe what they see in each one. The measure provides both specific and general knowledge about different areas of personality functioning, such as coping style, emotions, managing stress, mediation, ideation, self-perception, and interpersonal relationships.

Popularly known as the "picture interpretation technique," it was developed by American psychologists Henry A. Murray and Christiana D. Morgan at Harvard University.

Children’s Apperception Test (CAT)

Symptoms Check List (SCL-90)

The Symptom Checklist-90-R (SCL-90-R) is a relatively brief self-report psychometric instrument (questionnaire) published by the Clinical Assessment division of the Pearson Assessment & Information group. It is designed to evaluate a broad range of psychological problems and symptoms of psychopathology.

Emotion Regulation

Behavior Assessment System for Children, Second Edition (BASC-3)

The BASC–3 scales are used to evaluate the behavioral and emotional status of children and adolescents with sensory impairments. It is useful in the clinical diagnosis of disorders that can start in childhood or adolescence, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety and depression. It can also point out issues associated with learning disabilities, such as adjustment problems (e.g low self-concept).

Children’s Depression Inventory (CDI)

CDI is a self-report test and contains 27 items. Each item asks the participant to decide among three different choices, with regard to what he felt, thought or how he behaved in the past 2 weeks. Items are rated from 1 to 3. Higher scores show more depressive symptoms (Kovacs, 1992; Chorpita et al., 2005).

Neuropsychological Test

Stroop Color and Word Test, F-A-S Test

Comprehensive Trail Making (CTMT)

Comprehensive Trail-Making Test is composed of five visual search and sequencing task sets. The CTMT can detect problems with the frontal lobe, psychomotor speed, focus, visual search, and sequencing. It is a means of assessing and diagnosis brain injury

The Bender-Gestalt II is clinician-administered and asks clients to reproduce Gestalt figures presented on stimulus cards. This test uses recall procedures to assess visual-motor memory and provide a more comprehensive assessment of visual-motor skills.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Evaluation

Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule- Second Edition (ADOS-2)

The ADOS-2 has standardized activities and questions, such as planned social activities, which include events where social situations, communication, and certain types of behaviors are likely to appear. Combined with the ADI-, the ADOS-2 is the gold standard for diagnosing ASD.

Autism Diagnostic Interview–Revised (ADI-R)

The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) is one of the most widely used diagnostic algorithms in determining whether or not children have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Child Autism Rating Scale (CARS)

The purpose of the CARS (CARS™-2; Schopler, Van Bourgondien, Wellman, & Love, 2010) is to help identify the presence of autism in children and to determine the severity of symptoms.
