PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION

This is an in-depth evaluation  reserved for individuals who have been court ordered for a  psychological evaluation, or found to be in need of a more complete  assessment. This evaluation is performed by a Licensed Psychologist,  and is used with individuals who are suspected to evidence some type  of significant mental or emotional disorder, or whose behavior may  reflect considerable social impairment.


The purpose of the psychological  evaluation is to resolve diagnostic questions that cannot be  addressed by a mental health or other psychosocial assessment.   These questions may involve: (1) intellectual deficits, (2)  cognitive deficits,  (3) mental health diagnostic issues,  (4) the  interaction of personality variables with these factors, or (5)  parenting issues.
