Psychological evaluation, testing and assessment refer to the battery of tests and procedures used to evaluate intellectual, learning, emotional and/or behavioral functioning. We serve children, adults, families, schools, and community agencies.
At HTS, we specialize in the evaluation of children and adolescents with mental health or developmental delays, Autism diagnosis, Autism testing, psychological evaluation, mental health assessment, and developmental disabilities testing. Potential clients can be self-referred or referred by schools, government agencies, doctors, or mental health agencies
We utilize Ďstate-of-the-artí psychological tests and clinical interviewing techniques for Autism diagnosis, Autism testing, and other psychological evaluations which lead to the best possible recommendations for our clients. We are dedicated to providing evidence-based and ethical evaluations.
Our reports are clear, concise and designed to provide accurate diagnostic information and effective recommendations.
The comprehensive psychological evaluations conducted at HTS begin with a clinical interview followed by the administration of various psychological tests. The clinical interview is designed to obtain a thorough understanding of a clientís background. The psychological tests that are administered will depend upon the nature of the questions to be answered.
The evaluation may also include interviews with significant others, such as parents, spouses, or teachers, as well as a review of records and relevant documents. The results of the formal, integrated report are provided during a feedback meeting that is dynamic and interactive.
Given that a psychological evaluation (or Autism diagnosis or Autism testing) includes the administration, scoring, and interpretation of tests, the cost for an evaluation is determined by the number of hours required by the psychologist(s) to complete the full evaluation process.
Insurance companies and Medicaid may pay all, or part of the costs associated with a psychological evaluation. Prior to beginning the evaluation, an HTS billing representative will help determine if your insurance plan covers psychological testing.
We also recommend you contact your insurance company to determine if your particular insurance plan covers psychological evaluation. For further information about our services, please contact our Intake Coordinator, Dawn Nickles, at 614-470-2018.
