Psychological Evaluations

Intelligence Testing Session with WAIS at Allenmore - psychological testing TacomaAllenmore Pyschological Associates (APA) is pleased to provide a wide range of psychological evaluations and psychological testing to Tacoma and surrounding area residents based upon each client’s needs. Evaluations are performed in order to obtain in-depth and objective assessment of the individual’s intellectual, personality, mental health and behavioral functioning. They are useful in assessing intelligence, personal aptitudes, skills and abilities, personality characteristics and coping styles, and signs and symptoms of mental disorders. Psychological testing is also useful in clarifying an individual’s diagnosis, determining the extent or severity of mental health disorder and providing treatment or other types of recommendations. Psychological assessments typically employ both clinical interviews and a battery of standardized psychological tests.
 
 

Academic and Career Assessments

Whether someone is in school, looking for a job, or simply considering a career change, an academic or career assessment can be quite helpful. Academic assessments can help students clarify academic and career direction—saving expense and years of unnecessary time in school. Similarly, a career assessment may jumpstart a person’s career course or provide a focused alternative to a dead-end job or unfulfilling career.

Our psychologists have a wide range of skillsets that include advising high school students all the way up to targeted career counseling for upper-level managers and leaders. By utilizing personality assessments, Holland codes, and up-to-date data regarding career conditions and trends, we can help individuals find a career path that can provide them short-term, intermediate, and long-term success and fulfillment.

Child and Adolescent Evaluations

There are several reasons children and adolescents may need to have a psychological evaluation. These assessments can help to better understand a child’s or adolescent’s emotional and behavioral functioning or their qualification for a learning disorder. Psychological evaluations can also help to differentiate between different diagnoses, such as attention deficit disorders and anxiety disorders. This differentiation is imperative to guiding treatment and attaining adequate support for the child or adolescent.

Disability Evaluations

Disability evaluations come in various forms and from various organizations. However, they generally fall into two types: evaluations for short-term and long-term disability. Regardless of your unique circumstances, APA’s trained psychologists are equipped to address your evaluation needs. We can even coordinate your evaluation with case workers, adjudicators, attorneys and others involved in the process. We have had extensive experience interacting with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), the Division of Disability Determination Services (DDS), Labor and Industries (L&I), and other organizations that serve persons with disabilities.
