Psychological testing can help get to the bottom of issues that are causing difficulty for children, teenagers, and adults. A variety of assessment services are offered, including some of these:
When a child or teenager has difficulty learning, it impacts many parts of their lives, including self-esteem and emotional responses. Psycho-educational testing is designed to get to the bottom of learning problems. Testing provided by Dr. Harrison can identify causes of school problems, and then provides recommendations for remediation and academic improvement.
Personality and Behavior
Sometimes people behave in ways that cause problems for themselves or those around them. Personality and behavior assessment can discover root causes of unwanted behavior in children, teenagers, and/or adults.
High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders (Asperger's)
Persons with ASD can go undiagnosed for years because they are often extremely bright and verbal. Testing is designed to evaluate whether the person meets criteria for a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, and provides individualized recommendations for treatment. Dr. Harrison is certified in the ADOS, which is the gold-standard of autism assessment tools.
ADHD is a neurobiological condition that impacts an individual's ability to pay attention, concentrate, regulate emotions, and more. Testing can help determine if ADHD is present and identify the specific type of ADHD (inattentive, hyperactive, or combined), as well as help determine the most effective treatment.
