What is Psychological Testing?

If you or a family member has been referred for psychological testing, you probably have some questions about what to expect. Or you may have heard about psychological testing and wonder if you or a family member should be tested. Psychological testing may sound intimidating, but it’s designed to help you.


In many ways, psychological testing and assessment are similar to medical tests. If a patient has physical symptoms, a primary care provider may order X-rays or blood tests to understand what’s causing those symptoms. The results of the tests will help inform develop a treatment plan.

Understanding diagnosing Autism

ASD can sometimes be detected at 18 months or younger. By age 2, a diagnosis by an experienced professional can be considered very reliable.[1] However, many children do not receive a final diagnosis until much older. This delay means that children with an ASD might not get the help they need.

 

Diagnosing an ASD takes two steps:

  • Developmental Screening

  • Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation

All children are recommended for screening for developmental delays and disabilities during regular well-child visits.

  • 9 months

  • 18 months

  • 24 or 30 months

  • Additional screening might be needed if a child is at high risk for developmental problems due to preterm birth, low birth weight or other reasons.
