Psychologists use tests and other assessment tools to measure and observe a client’s behavior to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment.
Psychologists administer tests and assessments for a wide variety of reasons. Children who are experiencing difficulty in school, for example, may undergo aptitude testing or tests for skills such as dexterity, reaction time and memory.
If a person is having problems at work or school, or in personal relationships, tests can help a psychologist understand whether he or she might have issues with anger management or interpersonal skills, or certain personality traits that contribute to the problem. Other tests evaluate whether clients are experiencing emotional disorders such as anxiety or depression.
Lee Carlson Center offers testing and assessment services for all ages.
The Psychologist who administers the testing and provides assesments works closely with therapists, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, county social workers, school personnel, parents and self-referrals. Clarification of the diagnosis is critical for treatment planning and improving mental health and well-being.
New clients are being accepted and appointments are available on Saturday’s, some evenings and all school holidays.
