What to Expect


Phase 1 of the Assessment includes a 90-minute Cognitive Assessment Interview that will cover academic, interpersonal, family, medical and psychological history.  After the Interview, a computerized test is administered that assesses general  emotional functioning, coping, and personality. This information will be compiled and reviewed in order to determine whether further assessment is necessary.


Phase 2 (when indicated) involves formal cognitive testing, which may include intellectual (IQ) assessment, additional emotional/personality assessment and the assessment of other cognitive functions such as attention, memory, executive  functioning, reading, writing, mathematics, and other areas, depending on the conditions or symptoms being investigated.  Phase 2 typically takes place over two to three extended (2-3 hour long) testing sessions. 


Phase 3 involves a review of the results of the Assessment, an explanation of the tests that were administered and the reason for their administration, and a discussion of any applicable recommendations. 


Shortly after the conclusion of the assessment, a comprehensive, understandable report detailing the assessment process, the findings, and the applicable recommendations will be provided.
