We offer psychological testing services for adults 18 years and older. Types of psychological assessments available include:
1. Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation
The comprehensive diagnostic assessment aims to evaluate a range of neurodevelopmental, personality, learning and mental health conditions. The assessment could serve as a re-assessment to evaluate effectiveness of treatment and/or initial diagnosis for treatment planning (in the event that conditions were not previously examined in childhood or adolescence).
For instance, we can assess for:
- Learning Disorders
- Intellectual Disability
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Personality and Mood Disorders
2. Forensic Psychological Assessment
A forensic psychological assessment is a part of the broader category of psychological assessment. The purpose of forensic assessment is distinct from that of traditional therapeutic assessment, and as such forensic evaluators have different training and practice guidelines. The primary goals of a forensic assessment involve providing explanations for past and present behavior and, making predictions about the parameters of future behavior.
In other words, the assessment explores biopsychosocial factors that contribute to the commission of criminal behavior. This evaluation looks at the individual’s risk of criminal re-offending and identifies treatment pathways to mitigate future offending.
