Quick overview of Types of Testing we offer:
We assess for:
Learning Disabilities (Reading, Math, and process disorders)
Visual processing (including dyslexia)
Sensory Integration Concerns
Autism Spectrum disorder (including Asperger’s)
Depression, Anxiety and other mood disorders
Benefits of Testing: NO perfect test can tell us ALL we would like to know. Tests do give us additional
knowledge in a different setting than the one on one counseling. Tests are standardized and normed so
that we can compare one persons processing to that of the “average” person’s processing to help us
determine if there is a need that we as counselors may miss in a general counseling session. Many
times, you may have counseled someone for months and then have them complete an assessment and
discover an issue you never considered.
Limitations of Testing: We can only assess and evaluate information given to the examiner. If we do
not get the correct information, it cannot be properly evaluated. Humans are fallible so even with
testing, something could be missed. However, the rate of error is smaller when a test is used because
you are following a specific format and less likely to miss an important facet of the person’s functioning.
Cost of Testing: Depending on the type of testing needed, insurance may cover a portion of it. If we are
testing only for academic concerns, then insurance rarely ever pays. ADHD assessment is paid by
insurance in some cases, but not all. However, most of the time, if someone is coming for an academic
or ADHD concern, there is likely some anxiety or depression. Insurance will usually pay in that case.
Even with insurance, there will usually be some cost. Without insurance, the testing runs $250-950
depending on the type of assessment needed. In initial consult for testing is $100 which will usually go
toward the testing fee.
How to introduce clients to testing:
Most clients are open to the idea of discovering new information about themselves and if it is presented
as information gathering to help rather than “testing”; usually clients are happy to have additional help
and as the counselor you will gain more respect and credibility by suggesting it.
