Psychological Assessment

​Psychological assessment is a process of testing that uses a combination of techniques to help arrive at some hypotheses about a person and their behavior, personality and capabilities.  Psychological assessment evaluates behavior, thinking, and learning. The assessment process may include observations, interviews,  testing and consultation with other professionals involved in the client's care. Testing includes pencil and paper tasks, drawings, puzzles, and games. The assessment covers many skill areas, such as general intellectual functioning, language, memory and learning, problem solving, planning and organization, and academic skills (reading, math, spelling and writing). It also includes an examination of behavior and social-emotion functioning.
