Based on the reason for referral and needs of the client, our Clinical Director will develop an individually tailored battery of tests that provide a high quality and comprehensive assessment. A full psychological evaluation typically includes an in-depth clinical interview in addition to tests of ability/intelligence, academic achievement tests, personality tests, behavior rating scales, and various scales assessing psychopathology. Information from this evaluation provides a broad view of psychological functioning, which consists of intellectual and academic strengths and weaknesses, personality patterns, and various psychological diagnoses including autism spectrum disorder.
Upon completion of testing, a complete psychological report is written where results of the evaluation are reported and explained. This in-depth report contains background information, test scores and interpretations, personality/behavioral functioning, and a summary with recommendations.
For educational psychological reports, we administer the WIAT-II (UK), and Stanford Binet-5 in creating a comprehensive assessment for your child.
The Child Development Center offers intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to children with developmental delays. ABA is a science of human behavior whereby the therapists work towards measurable goals, collect data on children’s responses, implement research-based interventions, and target socially significant behaviors. The skills the child needs to learn are broken down into very small steps and taught to the child using repetition and reinforcement.
The goal of our ABA program is to help each child reach his or her highest potential. Curriculum goals focus on the areas of communication, intellectual development, social skills, and self-help skills. We also focus on managing behavior difficulties your child may have.
