Assessments from JB Psychological Services are a "detective like" look into functioning. Evaluations often include a variety of hands-on activities, interview, observation, and paper forms to help us better understand needs and strengths.
Evaluations can be an incredibly informative process for families, regardless of the outcome.
Evaluations can take anywhere from 3-12 hours divided over several dates dependent on need and referral questions. All evaluations include a 90 minute final feedback meeting in which the testing will be reviewed in addition to appropriate diagnoses and recommendations. Examples of referral questions and estimated time are included below. These do not include the amount of time for an examiner to score, write report, and review results.
