Psychological testing can help answer questions about emotional and behavioral functioning, learning issues, and academic concerns. For forensic evaluations, the court has the privilege of knowing any information you reveal during the course of an evaluation. CAMPBELL PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES, LLC has no control over how the results of a psychological evaluation will be used in court or by any person or organization to whom the report is released. When an agency has referred a client for a psychological evaluation, the report is the property of the referring agency. However, individuals are always entitled to receive feedback about the test results.
Psychological evaluations include assessment of cognitive functioning, educational achievement and levels of academic mastery, as well as emotional and personality functioning. They are completed over the course of two or three two-hour sessions. During the last session, the psychologist provides feedback to the client about the test results. All assessments include a detailed interview about one’s background, a review of the areas of concern and a review of any prior evaluations that may have been completed.
There are several types of evaluations that are performed at CPS. The type of evaluation is dependent upon the questions that you or the referral source needs answered. A general overview of the types of evaluations that CPS offers are listed below.
