What is included in an evaluation?

A psychological evaluation takes into consideration multiple factors that might be contributing to an individual’s overall pattern of strengths and weaknesses. The evaluation of a child & adolescent may include specific testing instruments to assess: 

·         Cognitive abilities

·         Adaptive living skills

·         Academic achievement

The clinician will typically complete a clinical interview with the child/adolescent and his or her parents.    Information may be gathered from the patient’s teachers, pediatrician/physician, or other relevant sources [with permission from the patient/parent of a minor]. This information will be used in conjunction with the clinical interview to determine the assessment battery that best meets the individual’s unique needs. Once the evaluation is completed, the clinician will review the results with the child/adolescent’s parents and develop a treatment plan that integrates the original goal for the assessment, test results and needs of the individual. The child/adolescent’s parents will receive an assessment report which includes the test results as well as recommendations for intervention.  This may include the need for academic modifications, tutoring, referrals for specific therapies (e.g., speech, language, or occupational therapy), recommendation for medication evaluation, and vocational consultation. Follow-up appointments with your clinician in order to evaluate responses to interventions modify interventions and address further needs is an important part of the treatment plan. Clinicians work closely with the patient’s physician (e.g., pediatrician, neurologist, family practice, internal medicine, or psychiatrist), school or workplace.
