Psychological Evaluation

A psychological evaluation may last anywhere from a couple of hours to all day. It typically involves an interview plus a battery of tests designed to address specific referral questions. A psychological evaluation report may include background information, tests results, diagnosis (when appropriate) and recommendations. Toward the end of the report specific recommendations may be made based on the evaluation findings.
