Children / Adult Psychological Assessment
Psychological assessment/testing is a process to observe and measure a person’s behavior to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment. Psychological assessment uses a combination of techniques to arrive at hypotheses about a person and their cognitive capabilities, behavioural functioning and personality. All assessments generally constitute intake interviews, clinical observation, psychometric instruments, and collateral information-gathering to identify presenting problem(s) and relevant background information. Comprehensive and holistic psychological assessments may span across few sessions. A feedback session will then be arranged to review the results with the clients. Depending on individuals’ need, the clients can request for psychological reports whereby additional charges may be incurred.
