Psychological Assessment Services provides psychological testing to assist in the process of diagnosis and treatment planning. Testing and interpretation is performed by staff psychologists, psychology residents, and doctoral level psychology interns. This service is primarily used by medical staff and therapists seeking objective information regarding a client’s condition and prognosis. WMH has a designated testing center that coordinates resources and scheduling for the testing that takes place center-wide.
We conduct a wide range of psychological and neuropsychological testing, including testing to determine your diagnosis and/or your treatment needs. We commonly test for such conditions as: mood disorders, anxiety disorders, dementia, cognitive functioning, etc.
As the contracted Medicaid provider, we cannot use Medicaid funding to conduct certain types of psychological evaluations. The types of evaluations NOT covered include: testing to determine eligibility for bariatric or other surgeries, testing to determine eligibility for SSDI/DSPD, parental fitness evaluations, custody evaluations, court-ordered evaluations, and some others.
You will notice we like to keep our testing center as quiet as possible to make it easier for you to focus during testing. As a result, we ask that you silence your cell phones and electronic devices. If your child is being tested, please make an effort to arrange care for your other children during that time. If you cannot do so, we encourage you to wait with your children outside of the testing center if possible to maintain a quiet environment for our clients completing testing.
If you cannot keep your testing appointment we ask that you provide at least 24 hours notice that you need to reschedule so we can offer that time to someone else. Due to there often being a wait list for services, we may not be able to reschedule you if an appointment is missed without notice.
