FREQUENTLY ADDRESSED TOPICS

  • REASONS TO GET AN EVALUATION

    A comprehensive psychological evaluation is essential for establishing accurate diagnosis, obtaining a baseline of behavior and ability, and developing a thorough and meaningful treatment plan for subsequent therapy.

  • IS ADHD OVER-DIAGNOSED

    Yes. ADHD is over-diagnosed. However, there is nothing more tragic than allowing genuine ADHD to remain undiagnosed and untreated. PSLI assessment of ADHD includes at least three different measures: One objective (computer performance) instrument and at least two other subjective self-report tests. We also attempt to obtain observations from parents and teachers. Getting several observations from different sources increases the convergent validity of the evaluation and the confidence we have in reporting symptoms of ADHD accurately.

  • INSURANCE

    PSLI does not accept insurance or third party reimbursement for any testing services. Because we are not affiliated with any insurance carriers nor school districts, you can be assured that your results will be absolutely confidential and include the best and most comprehensive recommendations for you or your child.

  • PRICING

    PSLI pricing is extremely competitive and is below that of most other professional facilities of this kind. Only public school and university based evaluations performed by graduate students are less expensive.

  • CLASSROOM OBSERVATION

    Although our staff cannot perform classroom observations, we do administer evaluations which include both teacher and parent observations.

  • PAYMENT COLLECTION

    Payment is due at the first appointment. For assessments that require multiple days of testing you may divide your payments. For example, for a three-day procedure you may pay one third of the fee at each visit. We cannot begin any analysis of test results nor begin writing the final report until the fee is paid.

  • FORMS OF PAYMENT ACCEPTED

    Cash, check or major credit cards are accepted. There is an additional 3.5% fee for credit card processing. Checks should be made out either to cash or directly to PSLI. You will receive a receipt for services upon request.

  • TESTING SCHEDULING

    Testing is performed during business hours, Monday through Saturday. Under special circumstances later evening or Sunday testing may be arranged for an additional fee.

  • LENGTH OF ASSESSMENTS PROCESS

    Scheduling of testing session is subject to availability but is typically begun within two weeks of contacting us. Once testing is completed the materials will be scored within one week and the written report (if applicable) will be completed within two weeks.

  • EXPLANATION OF RESULTS

    A thirty-minute feedback session is included in the cost of the testing. During this meeting, the main findings and recommendations will be completely explained to you and you will have a chance to ask any questions you have about the testing. After this final meeting, you may always call us again to ask any brief questions you may have.

  • CONFIDENTIALITY

    If you are 18 years old or older, your test results are completely confidential. They can only be released to other professionals with your specific written permission.
