If you or a family member has been referred for psychological testing, you probably have some questions about what to expect. The underlying cause of a person’s problem isn’t always clear. For example, if a child is having trouble in school, do they have a reading problem, such as dyslexia? An attention problem such as attention – deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)? Difficulty with impulse control? Depression or Anxiety? Psychological tests and assessments allow a psychologist to understand the nature of the problem, and to figure out the best way to go about addressing it.
Psychologists administer tests and assessments for a wide variety of reasons:
- Learning Difficulties
- Behavioral Issues
- Attention and Hyperactivity
- Emotional Factors Affecting Learning & Behaviors
