Psychometric Evaluation Services

Thank you for your interest in our Psychometric Evaluation Services.  Our Psychometric Evaluation Services are currently a designated program for individuals undergoing care and treatment by our medical staff at the Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics (SCDP) for a broad range of concerns, as well as individuals referred from private schools or primary care physicians for the following concerns: ADHD, Specific Learning Disabilities, and/or Intellectual Impairment.

Utilizing the most current assessment techniques and assessment instruments, our psychometric evaluations assess a broad range of skills, including verbal and nonverbal cognitive functioning (IQ), academic performance skills, visual-motor integration skills, adaptive behavior, autism spectrum characteristics, developmental milestones, attention-deficit concerns, and more.

Psychometric evaluation referrals from within the Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics assist our medical providers in the comprehensive diagnostic workup of children with a range of medical concerns (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorders, Specific Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Impairments, Developmental Delays, ADHD, and more).

Additionally, we receive several psychometric referrals directly from regional primary care physicians, other health care professionals, and local private schools to aid in both medical and educational concerns (e.g. ADHD, Specific Learning Disabilities, etc.).

Although each evaluation is specifically tailored towards an individual’s needs, the assessment process typically includes a historical intake, clinical evaluation (2-4 visits), assessment scoring and interpretation, a detailed report with recommendations and potential interventions for the family and school, and a comprehensive consultation with the family and clinical staff.
