Psychological, Educational and Neuropsychological Testing

A child can experience difficulties with school for many different reasons. To determine if learning, attentional, verbal, social, and/or emotional problems are interfering with functioning, diagnostic psychological evaluation may be very helpful. Psychological testing may hold the key in determining why a child or teen is not finding success in the school setting.

Our staff will work with you, your child, and school personnel to obtain the answer. All evaluations are individualized to meet your child’s specific needs. East End Psychological Services employs state-of-the-art testing measures. Some of the cognitive/intelligence tests that we use include the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - Fifth Edition (WISC-V) and the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale - Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV).

Educational testing is available to assess academic achievement levels including reading, writing, mathematical skills and comprehension abilities and to determine the presence of dyslexia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia. Specific learning disabilities can go unnoticed for years unless properly identified. We pinpoint learning problems that interfere with educational functioning.

We test for giftedness and provide documentation for Gifted and Talented Programs. Moreover, we have instruments to evaluate for personality, social and emotional factors as well as basic daily living and adaptive skills (e.g., Vineland Scales).

We offer comprehensive testing for Autism Spectrum Disorders. The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) is the most reliable instrument for diagnosing autism spectrum disorders and is at the core of our diagnostic assessment.

We assess symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children, adolescents and adults. Clients are evaluated for executive skill functions such as attention span, self-control, working memory and organizational abilities.

Neuropsychological testing is also available. We provide complete evaluation of neuropsychological domains including attention, learning and memory skills, alertness, orientation, executive functioning, visuospatial abilities, and sensory and motor skills.

Psychological evaluations for adults are routinely conducted for government agencies (e.g., police department) to assist in the hiring and employment process. Evaluations for the judicial system before trial or as part of the probation requirement are also conducted. Moreover, testing for bariatric surgery clearance and "fitness for duty" is available. Written reports are provided to school districts, courts or other requesting agencies when required.

If an individual has a disability or suspects a disability, we provide testing and documentation for those seeking accommodations for College Board tests (e.g., SAT). We will include in our report, the diagnosis, data regarding functional limitations that affect participation in these tests and statements regarding how and why the requested accommodations are appropriate. The criteria that we follow can be found at the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) section of the College Board website and general information is provided at www.collegeboard.com.
