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

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.

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

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 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
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.
