We Offer Psychological Assessment!

Did you know Heartland Christian Counseling offers psychological assessment services (otherwise referred to as Testing)?  What IS psychological assessment? Psychological assessment is a gathering information using a variety of tests and questionnaires. Often psychological assessment is used to clarify diagnosis for therapists and medication providers. One of our most frequent referrals is to assess for possible ADHD, but we also provide psychological assessments for career guidance (including pastoral and ministry readiness), people seeking to adopt, those seeking bariatric surgery, or to determine qualification for intellectual disability waivers. Our typical adult assessment battery is very comprehensive and includes a brief IQ test, a test of simple sustained attention, a test of frontal lobe executive functioning, a MMPI-3 (which assesses for a very wide variety of pathology) and a MCMI-IV (which assesses for possible personality disorders). Therefore we are able to determine diagnosis or at least clarify diagnoses between disorders such as ADHD, bipolar, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, personality disorders, and psychotic disorders – all of which can present in similar ways at times.

 

Who might be a good candidate for being referred for testing? We are able to test clients as young as 5 years old, but it is often more advantageous to wait (if possible) until age 7 because we are able to use a wider variety of assessments.

 

Who is NOT a good candidate?

Unfortunately at this time we cannot test clients with Medicaid insurance or children younger than 5 years of age. We also do not typically do any court ordered assessments. Finally, we are not able to offer assessment of autism, learning disorders, neurological disorders (such as Alzheimers), or pre-surgical evaluations other than bariatric surgeries (such as gender confirmation surgery, spinal stimulation surgeries, etc.).
