Mental Health/Differential Diagnosis Evaluations
Appropriate treatment requires an accurate diagnosis. When someone is experiencing many symptoms, it can be difficult to determine his or her diagnosis. This can lead to confusion concerning medications, types of treatment, educational accommodations, or ability to work. A psychological evaluation that assesses intelligence, level of academic achievement, mental health diagnosis, and then gives recommendations for services can be helpful. These evaluations are often referred to us by physicians or other agencies.
