Psychological Assessment

We are fully equipped to carry out traditional psychological evaluations, neuropsychological assessments, and, by individual contract, evaluations of students in the public schools in need evaluations beyond those provided by school personnel. All full psychological evaluations will include a general measure of intellectual ability, as well as basic personality measures and screening for neuropsychological impairment. We will also assess academic skills, in greater or lesser depth, depending on the purpose of the referral. Additional procedures will be added for particular questions, e.g., emotional or personality disorder, intellectual disability, neuropsychological impairment, attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), learning disorders, etc.

Once you and the psychologist have clarified the referral issues and the questions you wish us to answer, we will propose in writing what assessment tools we will use and tell you how much that and the final report will cost. The total cost will typically run between up $975, depending on the referral question and intended use of the findings. Some evaluations, in which we must integrate our work with that of other professionals in writing the final report, are often more costly.

Law enforcement evaluations in Texas (L-3) are $300, unless there are exceptional evaluative circumstances.

 

Additional, hourly charges will be assessed for courtroom appearances, depositions, admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committee meetings, uncontracted consultation,

etc. These services, including travel time, will be billed at $100/hour.

Appearances in court-related activities, ARD committee meetings, etc., are also billed at $100 per hour, or any fraction thereof in quarter-hour increments.
