Dr. Smith provides comprehensive psychological evaluations for children and adolescents. The assessments are tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual client. Services include assessments for a wide range of psychological issues including:
• Cognitive and Academic Issues (Intellectual Functioning, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Differences, Giftedness, Kindergarten Readiness)
• Developmental Delays
• Mood Disorders (Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, OCD, Phobias)
• Behavioral Disorders (Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Disruptive Behavior)
At the beginning of the assessment process, Dr. Smith will meet with you to obtain comprehensive background information in order to determine the best approach to meet the needs of your child. When selecting psychological testing services, she encourages you to ask other providers if all of the testing will be completed by a licensed, doctoral-level psychologist. The practice does not utilize graduate students, psychometrists, or psychological technicians which allows for a more personal service. The practice model assures you that a psychologist with extensive experience is involved in all phases of the evaluation: testing, interpretation, and diagnosis.
