What are assessment services?
Psychologists use tests and other tools to measure specific behaviors, skills, and abilities. A diagnosis and recommendations are made based on the information gathered during an assessment. For example, if there are concerns about a child's school performance, an assessment will include tests of academic achievement, learning, cognitive skills, attention, and social-emotional functioning. The information we gather can help clarify why the child is struggling in school. Once we know why they are having difficulty, we can implement the most appropriate support.
