comprehensive testing

Comprehensive testing, our most extensive type of evaluation, is particularly valuable for differentiating among various explanations for the same behavior or difficulty. FamilyFirst’s comprehensive testing examines a child’s functioning in all areas that could potentially contribute to identified difficulties in school, home, and the community. As such, it identifies strengths and weaknesses in both psychoeducational and social/emotional realms and we use the results to develop a well-rounded and detailed plan for improvement.

What does FamilyFirst’s comprehensive testing include?

  • Intelligence testing (i.e., IQ test)
  • Achievement testing in reading, writing, and mathematics
  • Attention and executive functioning testing
  • Visual and auditory memory testing
  • Visual-motor integration testing
  • Social/emotional testing (i.e., assess depression, anxiety, social problems, coping difficulties, self-esteem, etc.)
  • Consultation with parents, teachers, and other professionals working with your child (e.g., pediatrician, speech therapist, etc.)
  • Review of previous test results, report cards, writing samples, etc.

FamilyFirst believes in tailoring each assessment to meet the unique needs of your child. We customize the comprehensive assessment process to answer your specific questions. Comprehensive testing allows us to fully understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses and identifies what may be causing the behaviors you are concerned about at the current time.
