Evaluation Services

While psychological assessments are not necessary for all children, if a possible learning issue, educational weakness, or Autism Spectrum Disorder is suspected, parents may wish to have their child evaluated.

Thriving Minds offers psychological assessments for:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, and Aspergers Disorder)
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Dyslexia
  • Disorder of Written Expression
  • Mathematics Disorder
  • Reading Disorder
  • Nonverbal Learning Disorder
  • Executive Functioning Delays
  • Receptive or Expressive Language Delays
  • Developmental Disorders or Delays

Psychological assessments include the following components:


Initial Clinical Interview:  This session consists of obtaining background information, including a detailed educational, medical, and psychological history.  Present concerns will be examined in depth to determine if testing is indicated and, if so, we will explain the appropriate tests to be administered.

Feedback Session:  This final conference will consist of reviewing and discussing test results and recommendations.  Families will leave this session with a “game plan” on how to proceed in order to best help their child, as well as an extensive written report.

Psychological Testing with Child: Psychological testing can consist of intelligence testing, educational testing, personality testing, adaptive behavioral assessment, and social communicative ability assessment.  This process generally lasts 4-8 hours, and is separated into two to three different testing sessions.  Furthermore, we will consider any past assessments, medical records, school performance (utilizing past report cards), and obtain (with your approval) teacher ratings and comments concerning academic performance and behavior.

Fees: Initial Clinical Interview: $250 before insurance

          Psychological Assessment: costs vary by individual need

          Feedback Session: $170 before insurance
