A psychological evaluation can help answer the above questions and more. An evaluation is typically completed across three visits: intake, testing, and feedback. Dr. Jones will meet with the identified patient and caregivers to complete an initial diagnostic interview to gather history and further information about the presenting concerns. Dr. Jones will determine if psychological testing is needed in order to rule out any possible diagnoses.
At the testing appointment, Dr. Jones will administer any needed psychological tests in order to gain a better understanding of the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. At the feedback session, Dr. Jones will discuss all of the testing results, diagnoses, recommendations and next steps, and will provide a copy of the evaluation report.
