One of the areas in which we specialize at Northwest Tennessee Psychological Services is psychological testing. Testing is used as part of the assessment process to identify strengths and growth areas for individuals. This can help to clarify diagnoses and also in development of a treatment plan that addresses these areas.
Psychological testing can be useful when trying to identify the proper diagnosis for an individual. Many different mental health concerns can have similar symptoms. Testing helps to break these concerns down further and to identify patterns of processing that may be contributing to the difficulties. In addition, testing uses comparisons to other individuals who are in the same age and/or grade to guide decision making.
There are a number of conditions in which testing can be useful. Attention deficits, learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, and mood disorders are just a few of the concerns that can be addressed through testing.
