Comprehensive assessments from PEAK put the pieces together
so you can finally see the big picture.
The human mind is fascinating, filled with endless complexities and potential. What’s more, no two are alike and each person carries their own combination of talents and areas of challenge. PEAK’s comprehensive psychoeducational and neuropsychological assessments dig deep, uncovering the many facets of your own learning and thinking profile. Then we take it a step further, building a detailed report that explains what it all means, and more importantly, how you can use these discoveries to capitalize on your strengths while supporting your challenges.
From children entering school to college students to working adults, PEAK supports differently wired individuals of all ages. For more information, click the links below.
What makes PEAK different?
Some providers offer educational assessments. Others psychological or neuropsychological testing. PEAK is uniquely qualified to offer a combination of psychoeducational, psychological, and neuropsychological assessments.
We have extensive experience with working with children and adults who are underachievers, struggling in school or work, having social challenges, displaying unhealthy behaviors, and/or dealing with explosive emotions, worry, sadness, or other strong emotions. We are fully committed to understanding your individual needs, and craft personalized recommendations and plans for intervention. That’s why we work closely with parents, school staff, and other healthcare professionals to understand our clients’ strengths and his or her challenges.
This means we can customize the assessment process to best fit your needs – looking at the many facets of your learning and thinking profile from different angles. And this gives you a more complete picture of who you are, how you learn best and the concrete strategies you can employ to meet your potential.
OUR COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENTS INCLUDE:
AN IN-DEPTH INTAKE SESSION
Before the testing process begins, we take the time to better understand your needs. Whether you are the parents of a child or an adult client, we’ll take the time listen to your concerns and gather the information needed to develop a customized assessment to meet your individual situation. When needed, we will also consult with you or your child’s other providers such as doctors, teachers and other professionals.
CUSTOMIZED TESTING SESSIONS
Testing at PEAK is a highly personalized process. Most assessments include cognitive (IQ) and academic achievement testing. Depending on the information gathered in your intake session, and guided further by the data obtained from the cognitive and achievement assessments, the evaluation may also include other academic, behavioral, attentional, social/emotional, and/or neuropsychological measures. We use a “flexible battery” approach to dive deep into your concerns to identify both strengths and challenges.
INFORMATIVE FEEDBACK SESSIONS
We consider the feedback session one of the most crucial aspects of the evaluation. To finish the assessment process, we schedule a meeting with parents and clients to go over the test results in detail, explain our conclusions, and discuss recommendations, as well as answer any questions you may have. This is our opportunity to demonstrate how we have put together the pieces of the puzzle and to collaborate with clients or parents to finalize the action plan that will be outlined in the written report. It is not uncommon for a discussion of the testing results to bring to light previously undiscussed information, which we can then incorporate into the final conclusions and report to clarify the results even further.
HIGHLY DETAILED REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
At PEAK, we’re known for our highly detailed reports and recommendations. This provides insights into the testing process and helps to translate the scores into actionable recommendations to help you and your family move forward. Many times, these reports will form the justification needed to pursue an IEP or 504 plan in the educational environment. They can also offer the information needed to create measurable, practical goals, as well as helpful accommodations.
