We offer psychological, neuropsychological, and educational evaluations for adults and children. (Scroll further down this page to see definitions of these different types of testing.) We accept the MBHP family of behavioral health plans under MassHealth, and self-pay. We no longer take any private insurance as their policies do not allow us to do evaluations that meet our clinical and ethical standards of care.
We are available to meet to review testing that has already been done elsewhere and advise on whether more is needed and/or next steps. We can walk you through the reports you already have, in plain English, and answer your questions about them.
We work with early career assessment psychologists to support them as they grow their testing practices. We offer clinical and business consultation to help them develop the confidence and skills to have a flourishing assessment practice.
We offer evaluation services for legal cases, primarily in the areas of guardianship, special education concerns, and DCF care and protection issues. We are vendors with Massachusetts' CPCS system and also work on a retainer basis. Please be aware that health insurance cannot be used to pay for legal cases.
We can meet with you for a consultation to get an in-depth background on your situation and advise you as to whether testing is an appropriate next step, whether it would be better to pursue psychotherapy or other services first, and why. We can help connect you with providers for the services you need.
We administer stand-alone cognitive testing such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) that is required by some private schools as part of the admissions process. Because this is done for admissions, please be aware that your insurance will not cover the cost of the testing as it is not being done for a clinical purpose. We can usually do this type of limited testing quickly and get a report to you and to the school fast.
