BPS Medication Management
Psychological testing is a very thorough and precise way to accurately diagnose a wide range of disorders. When there are concerns regarding learning, a psycho-educational evaluation can help determine if a student’s challenges are a function of ADHD, auditory and/or visual processing deficits, memory issues, sequential reasoning difficulties, and more. Psychological testing can also help clarify underlying emotional/behavioral disorders. Everyone gets anxious and feels depressed from time to time, but a thorough evaluation can pinpoint the severity of symptoms necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. Only when the underlying learning, emotional, and/or behavioral difficulties are accurately identified, can you move forward with an effective treatment plan to address these concerns.
