Psycho-Educational Testing

At Paradox, we offer psycho-educational testing to help individuals understand their unique strengths and areas for growth.This includes an exploration of intelligence, learning, personality, mood, attention and executive functioning. Our perspective is that a diagnosis does not define a person. Rather, a diagnosis clarifies issues and informs therapy and school supports.  Although challenging, defining a diagnosis is sometimes important as it can guide goals for school, home, and therapy. The results can also help an individual receive proper academic support.

Our psychologists work with parents and teachers to understand your child’s needs. Through this collaborate approach to testing, all areas of need are uncovered. We work to ensure that the individual is a part of the process from beginning to end.

We are experts in detecting neurodevelopmental issues and other concerns, such as:

Our specialists help individuals and families gain insight into stressors and outside factors that may contribute to the challenges they are experiencing. By completing parent and teacher interviews and classroom observations, we can create a more complete picture. This offers insight into a child’s inner and outer worlds.
