Support every step of the way
We begin the testing process with a 1-hour FREE Consultation with a Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley, and Associate Psychologist. This meeting will be a time for you to express your concerns and hopes and goal for your child. Our Psychologist will help you to determine if testing/assessment is a right fit for your child and if not, what the best course of action should be. Whether you have been referred for testing by a school or professional, or if you’d like to gain further insight into your child, choosing to test your child is a big decision. We have a comprehensive testing department that can help you decide if testing is the right choice for your child. Testing provides useful information about how your child learns, but it can also be a stepping stone to opening new doors. Testing and assessments offer essential information about the correct methods and tools to help your child, and it can also provide educational accommodations, such as obtaining an Individual Education Plan (IEP) Plan, 504 Plan, and ACT/SAT or other college accommodations.
Tests we offer:
- Autism Spectrum
