Providing a comprehensive and objective assessment and analysis of current functioning.
At Cognitive Behavioral Solutions, we offer psychological and educational evaluations to answer the questions you have about your child’s emotional, behavioral, or academic functioning. Understanding the factors contributing to a given problem is necessary before effective solutions can be generated. Evaluations provide a comprehensive and objective assessment and analysis of current functioning, describing the severity of a particular disturbance and the capacity for change.
We conduct an individually tailored evaluation and thus, we do not give the same tests to every child. However, here is what an evaluation might encompass.
Intellectual and achievement (academic) tests
Specific tasks to look at visual and auditory attention
Measures that assess for emotional problems such as depression and anxiety
Self-report instruments that parents and teachers complete
Review of medical history and school performance
Review of school records when appropriate
Classroom observation when appropriate
Clinical interview and mental status examination of the child
