Child and Adolescent Testing

Testing for a child is recommended if there are diagnostic questions which are best answered by administration of formal measures of learning abilities, academic achievement, attention span, and/or emotional/behavioral issues.  Typically this may occur if there are questions about possible Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, mental retardation, or autism spectrum disorders, although testing may also be appropriate in other situations as well.  Typically, a parent interview would be conducted initially to gather background information.  Insurance approval of services may be sought, but currently many insurance companies are not approving testing of learning-related concerns.  Families often need to be prepared to cover some or all testing costs out-of-pocket.  The testing part of the evaluation may last betwen 3 and 8 hours, and your psychologist can estimate the time required before you begin.  Testing is typically conducted in several 90-minute to 3-hour blocks.  At the end of the process, the psychologist will provide verbal feedback to the parents, and sometimes  to the child, as well as a comprehensive written report.  These services are provided by Drs. Reis and Tanaka.
