Psychological evaluations are offered on children as young as 18 months, all the way through late adulthood. Any emotional, developmental, or behavioral concern can be evaluated, with a comprehensive psychological evaluation including best practice measures with the latest research.
The first step of an evaluation is a Diagnostic Interview. This is a chance to review concerns and symptoms, as well as review any previous testing or evaluations that have occurred. At the time of that meeting, Dr. Oppenheimer will discuss with you the plan for the evaluation, specifying exactly which domains would be measured. She may also ask to schedule observation times, on a case by case basis.
The next step is the evaluation day, which does require a deposit prior to the day of testing. This is a full day, with a break for lunch. Dr. Oppenheimer will specify before the evaluation day which family members, if any, will need to be present.
Three to four weeks after the evaluation Dr. Oppenheimer will schedule a feedback session where she will discuss the results, as well as share the recommendations and help to plan for future services and treatments that may be necessary.
