If you have been feeling like you are not meeting your potential, we can help you figure out why. Through our leading-edge psychological assessments, we help you get to the root of the problem — and then we partner with you on a plan to address your challenges.
Sometimes the specifics of psychological or cognitive challenges are difficult to assess through face-to-face interviews alone. To supplement those interviews, we look to the latest neuropsychological research and innovative test instruments, which enhance our ability to identify the dimensions and extent of cognitive and emotional problems.
We regularly use formal psychological assessments, typically referred to as "testing," to do this. In our written reports, common areas of discussion include attention and concentration, intellectual abilities, language skills, visual spatial abilities, executive functioning issues, learning and memory and psychological functioning.
On the first day of testing, an intake interview is conducted by the treating psychologist. Testing takes two days and you will meet exclusively with the psychologist during the assessment process. This access to a psychologist during testing is unique to The Family Institute and a benefit because of the focused one-on-one professional attention. The testing process includes hands-on, written and oral tasks, as well as computer generated questionnaires and other testing methods.
