Why Get a Psychological Assessment?
The term itself might seem intimidating but really a psychological test and evaluation is a commonly used tool to help aid in developing a method of treatment that would best assist the person or people close to them. The evaluation consists of basic tests and observing behavior. The tests will be age appropriate and usually involves checklists or questionnaires and an interview, where the psychologist preforming the evaluation will ask questions and the patient is free to answer in their own words, even bring up other concerns. A lot of the time, depending on the concern, other people close to the person will be interviewed too.
What Does a Psychological Evaluation Test For?
Educational Reasons – Sometimes teachers, parents or the person themselves is concerned about their learning capabilities, it is then they or another will suggest testing.
Health Concerns – Mental health concerns are another reason that an evaluation will be completed, this can range from ADHD to anger management, addiction to dementia or even to help determine the severity of a brain injuries and anywhere in between.
Legal Purposes – Sometimes an evaluation is court ordered, or suggested in a court setting, the reasons can be anywhere from a legal brush up to a custody battle.
