About Testing Services
The Purpose of Testing
Testing is helpful in making or confirming a diagnosis, which can inform providers, care-takers, family, and schools on how to best support a child or adolescent. Common things we test for:
Developmental Disabilities (Autism)
The Testing Process
Testing involves a comprehensive evaluation of the patient, including gathering information from those who are involved in the patient's life (i.e. parents, teachers, day care providers, medical providers, etc.). With this information, the clinician will develop an assessment protocol and administer game-like tests to learn their strengths and weakness, their preferred learning style, how their brain works, and possible diagnostic conditions that may exist.
Clinicians will give verbal feedback with care providers and/or the patient in addition to a written comprehensive report detailing specific recommendations to help the patient achieve optimal functioning at home and at school. With permission, results can also be shared with third parties to help determine appropriate accommodations to maximize the patient’s strengths and support areas that need accommodation or extra attention.
The Length of Testing
Testing involves an initial interview session which can last from one to two hours and a testing session which may be from 1-6 hours depending on the tests administered. Because testing is tailored to the individual patient and highly variable, session length and cost will vary.
Testing Services: Frequently Asked Questions
