Psychological Assessments can be brief or more comprehensive depending on the needs of the client, and the testing battery can be tailored as such. Assessment can be very helpful in identifying challenges, strengths, and needs that may not be apparent through other means- they are useful in identifying accurate diagnoses, confirming learning disabilities, and understanding how personality factors intersect with cognitive abilities.

Types of Psychological Assessments completed at Vivid Psychology Group:

  • IQ and Giftedness Testing:

    This type of testing can be used to better understand an individual’s cognitive abilities – how they process and understand information. IQ testing can be used for school admissions.

  • Psychoeducational, ADHD and LD Assessment:

    These assessments can diagnose ADHD, Learning Disabilities in Reading, Writing, and Math (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia, respectfully).

  • Psychodiagnostic and Mental Health Evaluations:

    These evaluations help identify symptomology and whether there may be appropriate accompanying diagnosis/diagnoses. The results may be used, among other things, in the service of furthering care by establishing treatment plans and recommendations.

  • Socioemotional Assessment:

    These assessments may use both objective and performance based measures with the goal of better understanding an individual’s emotion regulation, relationships with others, self-concept, and more.
