Psychological tests and Psychodiagnostic

Psychological tests are one of the most complete method to assess cognitive and behavioral aspects of an individual's personality, founding its analysis on direct observation of a person's behavior, cognition, along with self-report considerations. This method is used by clinical, school and forensic psychologists to assess different domains (ex. abstract thinking, intelligence, intellectual disabilities) with objective measures. It is similar to an MRI scan of the brain whereby physicians try to understand what is the underlying neurological condition, so psychological tests provide very detailed information regarding emotional, behavioral, psychiatric and neurological conditions. We offer a series of psychological tests for children and adults. 

These are the most common reasons to consider psychological tests for your children:

  • ADHD
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Autism
  • Anxiety
  • Achievement
  • Auditory Problems

  • Emotional
  • Math and Reading problems
  • Conduct problems
  • Separation/Divorce
  • Giftedness
  • Interpersonal issues

Tests can be requested by parents, primary care physicians, school psychologist, psychiatrist or the treating mental health provider. Insurance plans, including Medicaid (Medi-Cal), usually cover up to 100% of the cost (based on medical needs). Tests sessions are scheduled and completed within 1 to 2 weeks to ensure that the answers given by the child represent his/her psychological wellbeing. 

The steps involved to obtained a psychological assessment for your child are in general as follows:

  1. Fill out the online form (so we can verify how much your insurance is going to cover);
  2. Parents interview and review of pertinent records (eg. previous tests);
