Psychological Evaluations / Testing

BPW Assessment and Consultation Services provide psychological assessments for children, adolescents, and adults struggling with a wide range of socio-emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and/or learning challenges. Evaluations can inform the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders related to, for example, ADHD, learning disabilities, cognitive impairment, mood, and personality. Our psychologists will provide diagnostic clarity and treatment recommendations through observations, clinical interviews, record review, collateral information gathering, and psychological testing.

 

The amount of time an evaluation takes varies greatly based on one’s presenting concerns and the extent of testing required. A psychologist will provide a 1-hour initial clinical interview to gather background information and learn more about the presenting problems. Subsequently, a testing protocol will be recommended to assess the presenting concern further. Once testing has been completed and all collateral information reviewed, the psychologist will write a full psychological report explaining the findings and providing treatment recommendations.

 

All evaluations will include a clinical interview, psychological testing, record review, test scoring and interpretation, report writing (including a report for the client), and a feedback session.

Adult Psychological Evaluation (including ADHD testing)

This evaluation will include a clinical interview and numerous testing measures to assess for the presence of psychiatric disorders, including ADHD. A psychologist will create an individualized testing protocol based on the information gathered about the client’s history and current struggles. This testing data and other information gathered will help provide accurate diagnoses and data-driven, evidence-based, and personalized recommendations for the client and their treatment providers.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
