Assessments

Diagnostic Assessments*

We offer a number of different diagnostic assessments. Most of our assessments are conducted as a part of the process of therapy, in order for me to make an accurate diagnosis and make sure therapy is headed in the right direction. However, Dr. Whitehead also offers stand-alone diagnostic assessments for the following concerns:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – see here for more information about assessment procedures.
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – see here for more information about assessment procedures.
  • Social and Emotional Development of Children
  • Depression/Anxiety/OCD
  • Disruptive Behavior Disorders (ODD/CD)
  • Marital and Family Satisfaction and Functioning

​General Assessment Procedures
The procedures for most assessments I provide are similar to those for ASD and ADHD, but often take less time. Depending on the individual and the concern you are wanting evaluated it can take anywhere between 2-5 hours. The cost associated with the assessment is outlined in our policies and procedures. 

*NOTE: These assessments are NOT Neuro-psychological or Psychological Evaluations. They are diagnostic assessments. When a diagnosis is provided as a result they are official diagnoses, but do not qualify as ‘psychological evaluations’.
