Psychological Assessments provide insight into a person’s unique psychological and intellectual characteristics; it is an efficient, accurate and objective way of gathering information that can take many months to get from other methods such as psychotherapy. It offers insight into the severity of a particular problem and the capacity for adequate functioning. An assessment is often helpful to people who have not been helped by psychotherapy, are stuck in their lives, have significant problems in relationships or jobs, suffer from emotional dysregulation, or think they have serious psychological issues.
A Developmental Evaluation helps to identify developmental problems such as Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, and other problems that begin very early in life. An evaluation can help determine whether or not a diagnosis is present when a child fails to meet developmental milestones. It can also help to determine whether problems in adolescents and adults such as communication problems, problems relating to people, difficulty with change, and odd or unusual behavior are due to a developmental disorder.
