Psychological evaluations begin with a thorough intake interview that typically lasts between one and two hours. Dr. Krantweiss and his graduate student will conduct this evaluation together. This interview will help determine which tests need to be administered.
Once the test battery is chosen, assessment measures are typically administered by well-trained and carefully supervised graduate students. A typical test battery takes between four and six hours to complete. Testing may include paper-and-pencil measures, tasks measuring intelligence and achievement, and computerized testing.
When testing is completed, thorough reports including diagnoses and recommendations are prepared. These reports are then reviewed with you during a feedback session that is typically 30 to 60 minutes in duration.
In all, a typical psychological evaluation takes between six and eight hours to complete.
