Testing helps children and adults determine if their problems with inattention are due to Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder or another cause, which helps direct proper treatment.
Testing can help determine if a child, adolescent or adult has a learning disability in math, reading, and/or writing. Testing can also help establish appropriate special academic accommodations.
Given the recent changes to autism-related diagnoses, testing helps determine if someone is on the Autism Spectrum or has a Pragmatic Communication Disorder, and helps establish appropriate accommodations.
Psychological testing is also frequently used to determine mood disorders (bipolar, trauma disorders, depression, anxiety), personality disorders, behavioral disorders, or bariatric evaluations.
