Let’s Talk About Psychological Testing for Children

There is nothing more frustrating than watching your child struggle and not knowing what steps to take to help them.  Psychological testing is the most efficient and objective way of answering questions you may have about why your child is having difficulty at home, school, or with friends.   Through testing we can speak to your children’s potential in different areas  and identify barriers that may be preventing them from reaching their full potential.  We are trained to look at a broad range of skills, such as intelligence, academic achievement, learning processes (e.g., memory), attention, and emotional/social functioning.

The psychologists at FamilyFirst do not believe in a “cookie cutter” approach to testing; rather, we work with you to come up with a personalized assessment that will provide you with answers to your questions and give you recommendations for how to move forward.  We also believe it is equally important to highlight your children’s strengths and use these to form a detailed, successful intervention plan.  Now is the time to get the answers you have been looking for–call us today to talk directly with one of our licensed clinical psychologists who will help develop a plan of action for helping your child succeed.
