Our Testing Process

Free Consultation

We begin the testing process with a 1-hour FREE Consultation with a KPLA 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.

Schedule Testing

Our team makes the testing process fun in our relaxed environment.  The process does not feel clinical, and your child will likely enjoy the experience!   Depending on the type of testing/assessment, you can expect 3-6 hours of direct testing time.

School Consultation

In some cases, we also like to observe your child in their school environment or other social situations.  If this is appropriate we will coordinate with the school, and this will be at no extra cost.

Results

After the data is collected, we analyze and create a comprehensive report for you.   We will schedule a time where we will meet together to discuss the results and answer any questions you may have.  KPLA stands behind getting the answers you need fast.   We offer a $500 guarantee that you will have your child’s testing/assessment results in 2 weeks!
