Psychoeducational testing is one of our most comprehensive services and involves one-on-one, individualized assessment that includes tests of intelligence, achievement, personality, cognitive processing and social and emotional development. These tests can be used to diagnose cognitive strengths and weaknesses, Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and the presence and intensity of behavioral or social difficulties. Our testing ranges from preschool through adult levels. Most of our Psychoeducational Evaluations are administered over a two day period (approximately two hours each day) by one or more of our professional clinical staff which includes an educational psychologist, school psychologist, and/or licensed psychologist.
- The completion of a Developmental History Questionnaire, Behavioral Assessment System for Children (BASC-2) or a Conners-3 Questionnaire, and Teacher Questionnaires (when appropriate).
- A review of any previous school or medical records.
- Consultation to discuss and interpret test results and recommendations (usually about an hour).
- A written report with test results and recommendations.
- School conference (with permission).
Fees for the Psychoeducational Evaluation depend on the complexity of the assessment battery.
We offer cognitive/achievement testing for several private schools in the area as part of their admission requirement. This may also help in determining the appropriate placement for the student and school.
Talented and Gifted
Our Psychoeducational Evaluation can also provide an assessment to help identify children and adults who may be gifted.
Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE)
Keller Clinic is on the approved list for several school districts in the tri-county area to provide an Independent Educational Evaluation.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
We offer a comprehensive evaluation process for children and adults who may have attention problems (ADHD). We use standardized tests; teacher, parent and student rating scales; the Integrated Visual & Auditory Continuous Performance Test (IVA CPT); clinical and classroom observations; Developmental History Questionnaires (DHR); and as much background information as we can obtain to help differentiate between primary attention problems and secondary (look-alike) attention problems.
Keller Clinic is pleased to offer an affordable FIRST LOOK screening for children and adults who are concerned about attention problems but are not sure they need a full, formal evaluation. The FIRST LOOK screening is to help differentiate between PRIMARY ADD and SECONDARY ADD. If the FIRST LOOK screening suggests attention, learning and or behavioral concerns, a comprehensive Psychoeducational Evaluation is available (see above).

- Psychological Assessments
- Psychological testing provides independent evaluation alternatives for parents, schools, and other professionals.
