At Unvaled Psychological we offer assessments for the purposes of diagnostic clarification, for treatment planning, and for educational/occupational related concerns. At Unvaled Psychological all assessment batteries are uniquely designed utilizing a variety of tests to best identify the needs of the patient as posed by the initial referral question. Not all assessments are covered by insurance and all out of pocket costs will be discussed with you during your initial diagnostic interview.

What to Expect

Psychological testing is a three-part process that typically goes as follows:

First you will meet with the psychologist for a diagnostic interview to discuss your history and reasons for seeking testing. If you are a parent or guardian seeking testing services for a child; you and your child (if over the age of 10) would meet with the psychologist together to discuss your reasons for seeking testing for your child.

Next, you and/or your child will come in for the testing appointment. These are typically scheduled n three-hour blocks; however, on occasion testing will require two sessions. Parents are required to remain in the waiting room for the duration of testing.

Lastly, during the feedback session the psychologist will discuss with you the results from your testing. You will be given a comprehensive report that will include recommendations to assist you in your healing.
