Evaluation and diagnostics – also known as psychodiagnostics – is the first step necessary to diagnose and clarify concerns regarding behavior, personality traits, mood, emotional functioning, and cognitive processes. The evaluation is always an individualized, comprehensive assessment and is designed to deliver a range of diagnoses including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), developmental or learning delays or disabilities, memory and concentration difficulties, or gifted / talented proclivities. Our testing is appropriate for individuals of all ages.

Once the evaluation and diagnostics process is complete, the findings are used to develop personalized treatment strategies and interventions.
