Fernbrook Family Center offers complete psychological assessments. Psychological testing assesses cognitive abilities, functional skills, academic skills, developmental delays, and behavioral and personality functioning. The findings assist in developing specific treatment plans, building realistic expectations for treatment progress, and determining referrals for other services as needed.
When you go to the doctor, your health concerns are diagnosed before the doctor recommends a course of treatment. The same principle applies with mental health. We need to understand the issues, concerns, or problems before we can recommend a treatment plan.
During your diagnostic assessment, we collect a comprehensive history including information on development, culture, mental health, medical health, school/work, and other important life areas. The assessment process may involve more than one session and other sources as determined by the mental health professional to make the best possible determination.
