Psychological, Neuropsychological, Emotional and Behavioral Assessments in Northville, MI

ADHD Testing For Adults Northville MI

Viewpoint Psychology and Wellness specializes in psychological testing and assessments designed to identify cognitive, emotional and behavioral issues.

We administer psychological and neuropsychological testing to children, adolescents, and adults. Patients are often referred to us for an assessment by parents, schools, employers, physicians, or therapists. An assessment examines the relationships between an individual's behaviors, academic or work abilities, cognitive functioning, and emotional functioning.

How can psychological testing help?

Psychological testing can be greatly beneficial to treatment because standardized questionnaires, computer-based instruments, and interactive tests can help identify an individual's diagnosis. The results of the assessment are then used to indicate the best treatment options available for the individual, as well as determine if interventions or accommodations are necessary in academic or work environments.

Testing is an effective way to improve the way in which a provider such as a teacher, therapist, or physician proceeds with an individual. Our providers are trained in recognizing when testing will be useful, as well as the type and level required.

Common reasons people undergo psychological testing:

Cognitive Assessments

Cognitive assessments are utilized as a way to determine the impact of intellectual ability, academic or work skills, behaviors, and cognitive functioning on academic, work, and psychological functioning. The results of the testing help in determining a diagnosis and appropriate treatment of developmental, educational, occupational, medical, psychiatric, and cognitive concerns.

Referrals are commonly made for the following:

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Educational Accommodations
  • Job Accommodations
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Reading Disorders
  • Mathematics Disorders
  • Writing Disorders
  • Complex Medical Conditions
  • Concussions
  • Speech/Language and Communication Disorders

Emotional and Behavioral Assessments

Parents, teachers, employers, or other health care professionals request emotional and behavioral assessments when a child, adolescent, or adult is struggling in school, at work, at home, or in peer and significant relationships. Emotional and behavioral assessments are also requested by therapists when starting treatment or if they have a question about the individual regarding diagnosis or treatment planning.

Referrals are commonly made for the following:

  • Mood Disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Interpersonal Difficulties
  • Behavioral Problems
  • Trauma

How long will an assessment and/or testing take?

This will depend on the referral question that is provided to the practitioner prior to testing. Some questions require one or two tests and some require extensive testing that may take several sessions to complete. In addition, a clinical interview from several individuals will be required to complete the testing. The reports following the testing will likely take two to three weeks to complete. The psychologist who will be completing the testing will discuss this information with you prior to testing.
