INTELLIGENCE ($700.00)

The Wechler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI–IV) is an intelligence test designed for children ages 2 years 6 months to 7 years 7 months. An innovative measure of cognitive development for preschoolers and young children that is rooted in contemporary theory and research. It places a strong emphasis on child-friendly, developmentally appropriate features. It provides subtest and composite scores that represent intellectual functioning in verbal and performance cognitive domains, as well as providing a composite score that represents a child’s general intellectual ability (i.e., Full Scale IQ).


INTELLIGENCE ($600.00)
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V), developed by David Wechsler, is an individually administered intelligence test for children between the ages of 6 and 16 inclusive that can be completed without reading or writing. The WISC takes 65–80 minutes to administer and generates an IQ score which represents a child's general cognitive ability.

ACHIEVEMENT ($600.00)
The Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT-III) developed by David Wechsler, assesses the academic achievement of children, adolescents, college students and adults, aged 4 through 85. The test enables the assessment of a broad range of academics skills or only a particular area of need. The WIAT-II is a revision of the original WIAT (The Psychological Corporation), and additional measures. There are four basic scales: Reading, Math, Writing, and Oral Language. Within these scales there is a total of 9 sub-test scores.

BEHAVIOR ($350.00)
The Behavior Assessment System for Children 2nd Edition (BASC‐2) is a norm referenced diagnostic tool designed to assess the behavior and self‐perceptions of children and young adults’ ages 2 to 25 years. The BASC‐2 is a multidimensional and multi‐method tool since it measures numerous behavioral and personality characteristics through several report based measures. A comprehensive assessment of behavior and emotions in children, adolescents, and college students. Activities of Daily Living, Functional Communication, Adaptability, Hyperactivity, Aggression, Leadership, Anxiety, Learning Problems, Attention Problems, Social Skills, Atypicality, Somatization, Conduct Disorder, Study Skills, Depression, Withdrawal.

School psychologists, clinicians, and other professionals can use the BASC–2 system to help:

  •   Evaluate and address behavioral and emotional issues that may impede an individual's ability to thrive in home and school environments
  •   Meet guidelines for identifying strengths and weaknesses and diagnostic testing a differentiated instruction and progress monitoring
  •   Differentiate between hyperactivity and attention problems with one efficient instrument
  •   Monitor treatment interventions and outcomes

ADD/ADHD ($250.00)
We also use the Brown ADD Rating Scales for Children, Adolescents and Adults. Dr. Brown has developed and published assessment tools to help assess executive function impairments associated with ADD/ADHD and related problems. These tools are designed for easy use by psychologists, physicians, psychiatrists, school psychologists and other educational, medical or mental health professionals.
Please note: additional testing may be required, which would increase the cost of assessment.

 

ANXIETY ($225.00)
The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), created by Dr. Aaron T. Beck and other colleagues, is a 21-question multiple-choice self-report inventory that is used for measuring the severity of an individual's anxiety.

DEPRESSION ($225.00)
The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI, BDI-1A, BDI-II), created by Dr. Aaron T. Beck, is a 21-question multiple-choice self-report inventory, one of the most widely used instruments for measuring the severity of depression. Its development marked a shift among health care professionals, who had until then viewed depression from a psychodynamic perspective, instead of it being rooted in the patient's own thoughts.

Drug Abuse Screening ($200.00)
The Drug Abuse Screening Test (DAST) was developed in 1982 and is still an excellent screening tool. It is a 28-item self-report scale that consists of items that parallel those of the Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (MAST). The DAST has exhibited valid psychometric properties and has been found to be a sensitive screening instrument for the abuse of drugs other than alcohol.
