Psychological testing can help provide answers and direction to problems that children or adolescents may be experiencing that can’t be answered through an interview or observation. Adults may also seek out psychological testing to help with treatment, clarify diagnosis, or meet criteria for applications for adoptions or other processes. Psychological testing allows a psychologist to compare a child’s performance and behaviors with other children of the same age. This allows a psychologist to specify the medical or psychological source of problems and to make appropriate recommendations. Pathways strives to provide quality, comprehensive psychological assessments and recommendations based on the individualized needs of each client.
Psychological assessment can provide a more accurate picture of emotional, behavioral, or academic problems a child or adult may be exhibiting. Testing offers a more comprehensive approach to understanding symptoms by combining multiple opinions as well as actual performance on psychological tests to better identify the true nature of problems. Psychological testing can help avoid misdiagnosis and improper treatment of problems that can look similar and share common symptoms. Psychological assessment is a scientific and research based approach that aims to provide an objective diagnosis while taking into account the individual’s unique issues and problems. The ability to accurately account for and provide a correct diagnosis is extremely Important for proper treatment.
Psychological assessment can aid in guiding treatment, medication decisions, appropriate therapies, school accommodations, interventions, and counseling approaches. Comprehensive assessment can assist in treatment planning and direct parents and professionals to resources and treatment approaches that will be most beneficial to the child or adult. Many schools and colleges will not provide necessary school assistance and accommodations for disorders such as ADHD, Asperger’s Disorder, and others, without psychological support. School testing will typically not provide a formal medical diagnosis.
