Assessment Services

The CPSD offers psychological and psychoeducational assessments (children, adolescents, and adults), and career assessments (adults), to provide diagnosis and treatment recommendations.  Clients seek assessment for a variety of issues, such as problems meeting the demands of school and/or work, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, or unexplained changes in daily functioning. Often, clients come with a specific question, such as “Do I have a learning disability?”, “Does my child have Autism Spectrum Disorder?”, or “What career fields are right for me?”  

Psychological assessment can be particularly helpful in clarifying underlying reasons for current difficulties, and what to do about them, as well as identifying individual strengths. You can learn more about how psychological assessment may help you from the American Psychological Association: Understanding Psychological Assessment.
