Licensed Psychologists at BTS conduct comprehensive mental health assessments that will help parents and families clarify a diagnosis, monitor changes in functioning and to obtain treatment recommendations to help families access the appropriate interventions. We specialize in the diagnostic assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, other developmental disabilities and learning disabilities.
Psychological assessments may include, but not be limited to, the following measures depending on the diagnostic questions to be answered: cognitive functioning; adaptive functioning; behavioral functioning; personality; attention and memory. Autism spectrum assessments may include measures that are designed for assessing symptoms related to the autism spectrum.
A typical assessment takes between 2-5 hours to complete over 1-3 scheduled sessions. The results are compiled into a report. Your psychologist will schedule a time to meet with you to review and discuss the results and you will be given a copy of the full report.
