Testing

"Contact-Free"

Testing gives us important answers that aid in our understanding, help plan next steps, and build communication between providers. Delays in these services can prolong interventions that can be important to you or your child's educational or occupational next steps. We're pleased to be able to help you find the answers you're looking for while also protecting your health and safety!

Contact-Free

The health and safety of our clients and clinicians are of the utmost importance. Our unique setting allows us to administer standardized testing instruments, contact-free! Standardized tests are only valid when administered a certain way. This has created challenges for the assessment community. When these protocols are administered virtually, it compromises the accuracy of the test and personal protective gear, such as masks, interfere with verbal instruction and responses. Our space allows us to create a floor-to-ceiling plexiglass barrier so both the clinician and client can confidently remove his/her mask for portions of administration. Duplicate testing supplies limits the needs for clinician and client to share supplies. 

Psychoeducational Testing

When a child is struggling to perform their best at school, psychoeducational testing can help us understand where the barriers to learning are. Psychoeducational testing assesses many different areas, and gives us a road map to see where your child is excelling and struggling. By isolating the troublespots we can make a plan to help! We can utilize the child's strengths to aid in learning. All testing comes with custom recommendations, addressing your child's needs, ready to fit in a home and classroom setting!

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is a condition that has been highly debated. With all these questions, how we diagnosis ADHD becomes even more important. Green Leaf clinicians are highly qualified professionals that specialize in ADHD. At Green Leaf we don't just use questionnaires, we have a comprehensive group of tests to assess multiple domains. Most importantly, computer-based, objective measures. We draw conclusions from looking across all of these sources of data.
