What to Expect on Testing Days

Direct testing is completed face-to-face in a one-to-one setting.  It involves multiple mini-tests involving memory, problem-solving and other thinking and academic skills.

The assessment room is designed to be inviting to clients while also having minimal distractions during testing sessions.  A separate waiting room has a calming corner with a Lego table, some sensory items, fidgets, and short games if extra reinforcers or breaks are helpful for the client in between mini-tests.

Parents are often asked to complete questionnaires in the waiting room while their child works with the examiner. 


Siblings are welcome to attend the appointments and play in the waiting area.  Parents are encouraged to bring snacks for their children.  Coffee is available for adults.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
