PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION AND PSYCHODIAGNOSTIC
Psychological tests are one of the most complete methods of assessing cognitive and behavioral aspects of an individual, both children and adults, grounding its analysis on direct behavioral observations, measurement of cognitive skills, and self-report considerations.
This method is used by psychologists to assess different domains, ex. abstract thinking, intelligence, with the aim of discovering developmental delays, adaptive deficits and underlying personality disorders through objective measures (tests).
It is similar to a brain scan, like an MRI, whereby the physician tries to understand what is the underlying neurological condition of a specific problem so psychological tests provide very detailed information of the emotional, behavioral and neurobiological conditions.
Furthermore psychological tests evaluate a person's ability to regulate her mood, comprehension speed, cognitive (dys)regulation, (selective) attention, capacity to discriminate between stimuli, and inform the examiner on the extent of a specific cognitive deficit providing the information needed to create a targeted treatment plan with short and long-term goals. Often they are paired with neuropsychological tests.
We offer more than 100 different tests to cover specific domains such as cognition, behavior, mood, adaptive skills, executive functions; they are part of psychological and neuropsychological batteries. They are available for children and adults.

Neuropsychology is the study of an individual's cognitive and behavioral symptoms linked to neurological conditions. Clinical
Neuropsychology assess how, and to what extent a neurological illness (ex. stroke) is impacting the daily functioning of the person (ex. memory), while neuropsychological tests provide detailed information on the level of impairment of the nervous system, and what interventions are feasible to treat the symptoms.
Neuropsychological tests provide objective measures of an individual's strengths weaknesses while at the same times identify changes and disturbances in neuro-cognitive functioning (ex. emotion) by correlating physiological (neuro-metabolism), psychological (ex. perception) and neuro-anatomical information (ex. stroke of the frontal lobe). Neuropsychological test's results provide guidelines for rehabilitation and educational planning to the examinee and the family. Click here to learn more.
