Testing sometimes includes personality assessment and behavior rating scales. Again, depending on the purpose of testing and the battery, it may include measures that assess someone's personality traits, mood, anxiety or depression levels, social and emotional functioning, or performance in a variety of settings. It is up to the individual and the psychologist to determine the purpose of testing and what measures will be used. A final report should include detailed information regarding the individual and specific recommendations for school, work, or home.
I love providing testing because I know the value in it. I have observed how helpful it can be in learning to change or modify cognitive and psychological processes. Identifying issues such as learning disorders, attention and concentration problems, executive functioning deficits, social or emotional difficulties, and low processing speed can be detrimental in changing how someone functions in the world. It is never too late to find out if a cognitive or psychological issue is holding you or your child back from performing at the desired level.
