Psychological Testing

Psychological testing is an organized approach to understanding how someone functions by formally and systematically assessing different dimensions of the person. These dimensions include cognitive (intellectual) functioning, personality functioning and neuropsychological functioning. Tests can be administered to assess both global aspects (e.g., what is the person's overall intellectual level?) as well as specific aspects (e.g., does the person experience challenges in maintaining focus and attention on a task?). The specific tests administered vary depending on the questions that need to be addressed.

Psychological testing is recommended for different reasons. On some occasions, testing is conducted in conjunction with an initial consultation in order to provide a more detailed understanding of what's happening. On other occasions, testing is conducted because there is a question about a specific diagnosis or condition that can be answered more fully by testing (rather than in consultation). On still other occasions, testing is conducted as part of a required assessment by an outside agency.

The outcome of psychological testing usually involves feedback in a meeting, as well as a written report of the test results and their implications.
