Evaluation Center Services
The professionals conducting the evaluation will determine what tests should be administered according to the needs of the individual being evaluated. Clients are evaluated to establish a learning, behavioral, and/or psychological profile. The Shelton Evaluation Center conducts psychoeducational, neuropsychological, and psychological evaluations.
A psycho-educational evaluation assesses learning difficulties and may include measures of intellectual/cognitive ability, attention, auditory and visual processing, oral and written language ability, fine and gross motor development, and academic skills.
A neuropsychological evaluation assesses more specific neurological difficulties and may include measures of specific cognitive abilities such as memory, executive functions, visual-spatial functions, language and social communication, and sensory motor functions.
A psychological evaluation assesses personality and behavioral difficulties and may include a battery of emotional, personality, and behavioral instruments.
Additionally, the Shelton Evaluation Center conducts evaluations specific to the diagnosis of ADHD. This evaluation focuses solely on ADHD and is conducted over a half day. It includes intelligence testing, a structured interview, behavior rating scales, a continuous performance test, and a written report. If problems beyond the ADHD symptoms are noted during this evaluation, further testing may be recommended.
