Psychological Assessment and
Does your child struggle at school? Do you have difficulties staying focused and concentrating while at work? Is learning a struggle for you or for your child? Have you noticed recent changes in your work performance or in your child’s school performance? Would you like to understand more about how you think about and relate to others?

Enrichment Counseling and Assessment has providers who specialize in psychological evaluation and testing services. Our unique commitment to this area of psychology sets us apart from others in the mental health field. Our providers conduct thorough psychological evaluations and provide useful feedback after the evaluation. We have appropriate materials to test pre-school children, grade school children, adolescents, and adults.

When appropriate, special narrative reports are generated to explain results. In addition, feedback sessions are available, where you attend a special face to face meeting with a psychologist to discuss evaluation results.

Appointments for psychological assessment and testing can be arranged for Saturdays or on evenings so that you do not have to take off work or remove your child from school.

When is Psychological Testing Useful?
We commonly use psychological testing in situations where individuals may be experiencing Learning Disorders and Academic Issues, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bariatric Surgical Issues, ADHD, Anxiety & Depressive Disorders, etc. Enrichment provides the following psychological assessment and testing services:

  • Learning Disorders
  • Behavioral and School Problems
  • Personality Assessment
  • Intelligence Testing
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
  • Gifted Abilities
  • Emotional Disturbances
  • Pre-Surgical Bariatric Evaluations

Intelligence or Cognitive Testing
Also called IQ tests, these assessments attempt to measure your intellectual functioning or your basic ability to understand and assimilate the world around you and apply this knowledge to enhance the quality of your life. These tests also assess functions such as memory, visual and verbal reasoning skills, as well as visual and verbal learning ability. Often, pre-schools and elementary schools recommend or require IQ testing for admission.

Personality or Projective Testing
Personality tests attempt to measure your basic personality style and are most often used in clinical, research, or court settings to help with diagnosis and treatment. The psychologists at Enrichment Counseling and Assessment are competent in administering a number of different personality tests to assess an individual's personality style.

Clinical Testing
Clinical tests are used to help determine precisely what diagnosis fits a particular group of symptoms an individual might be experiencing so that an effective plan of treatment can be developed. Such assessments are often used to assess for depression, anxiety/panic, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to name a few.

Academic or Achievement Testing
Similar to IQ tests, Achievement Tests are often performed to assess an individual’s ability to learn certain material and/or material they have already learned. Such tests can be helpful in providing information regarding learning delays or to point out areas of academic difficulty to be re mediated.

Learning Differences Assessment
The Learning Differences Assessment Program at Enrichment is designed to address academic issues that any child, adolescent, or adult may be encountering. We often receive referrals from parents of children who feel that their child has "fallen in the cracks" in terms of attention from their respective educational system. Psychological testing and consultation are helpful modes of intervention in these cases.

Providers work collaboratively with the child and his or her parents to specify the problem and develop an individualized treatment plan.
