Psychological assessments are often helpful in understanding the strengths and challenges someone may have in their cognitive, behavioral, and emotional functioning. The psychological assessment process allows for diagnostic clarity and individualized recommendations. East Tennessee Focus Center is happy to offer psychological assessments for adults, as well as children. Often, children who are struggling with academic work, social interactions, and emotion regulation will have atypical neurological development that can be identified through the assessment. This allows for parents, teachers, and therapists to provide the intervention and accommodations necessary to allow each child to reach their potential. Your child’s school, pediatrician, or mental health provider may refer you, but a professional referral is not necessary for testing.
East Tennessee Focus Center is now offering BrainCheck. In years past, psychological testing was only given on paper and pen. However: through modern technology we can offer this test via IPad using interactive games, and the results can be returned within minutes. Everyone should know their cognitive health. Early detection is the key to addressing brain impairment.
