Comprehensive psychological assessments for autism, depression, anxiety, ADHD, giftedness, specific learning issues and more.
If someone has physical symptoms of an ailment, they might go to a doctor to be assessed. This might include a series of tests to determine what the issue is and even start to define a cause.
A psychological assessment is the same. It's a test or series of tests that can help us understand the underlying issues for a client. The outcome of an assessment can help us to understand one's strengths and weaknesses in a number of areas, including cognitive processing and educational abilities. This, in turn, can help determine possible accommodations or interventions in the home, at school, or in the workplace.
Beyond best-practice testing methods.
The clinical team at Konick & Associates takes into account the “whole picture” when working with a client. We are known for our comprehensive psychological assessments that go beyond best-practice testing methods. An evaluation provides valuable insight into you or your child or adolescent’s emotional, behavioral, functional, and/or educational needs. Information is integrated from parents, educational staff, and other treatment providers to formulate a complete picture of our client. After an evaluation, a comprehensive report is provided to you with recommendations for home, work and/or school.
Many professionals provide an evaluation that shows how a person is ranked by numbers. Our team goes beyond this and interprets those numbers to provide a concise, but in-depth description of what they mean based on our years of experience. It takes the evaluation from being a general tool to a more focused, useful resource.
Most importantly, an assessment is nothing to fear nor is it something to "study" for. It's simply a tool psychologists use to find the best way to help you.
