The PSC offers comprehensive assessments (IQ, ADHD, achievement, personality) for children, adolescents and adults. Assessments typically require 2-3 sessions to complete diagnostic interviewing and structured testing, as well as a feedback session to review the assessment results. The full process may take up to a month, although the length of testing depends on the nature and needs of each individual client.
