The Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center offers a variety of psychological testing services, for children, adolescents, and adults. A psychological evaluation is a great way to gather a lot of information in a short period of time, which provides therapists with insight into a client’s personality functioning early in the therapy process. A psychological evaluation assesses social, emotional, and behavioral functioning and provides diagnostic impressions and comprehensive treatment recommendations.
We also provide evaluations for ADHD, learning disabilities and requests for accommodations for students in school or taking college entrance exams. These evaluations assess cognitive potential (IQ), academic achievement, and social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. We provide a comprehensive report that will meet documentation requirements for secondary schools, university disability services offices, and the College Board. Physicians and insurance companies often request an ADHD evaluation for the initial diagnosis, to document the need for medications, as well as yearly updates.
We also provide psychological evaluations for clients who are undergoing bariatric surgery.
Insurance Coverage and Our Fees: Most psychological evaluations are covered by insurance, although there may be some limitations. Our office staff will be happy to work with you to determine your responsibility for the cost of these evaluations. An estimated cost will be given at the initial appointment and a retainer is typically required.
