Testing & Assessments

Why comprehensive testing for Autism Spectrum Disorder & ADD/ADHD?

If you want to seek out the most useful treatment and resources, you need to accurately diagnose the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the testing process like?

The comprehensive testing process has multiple steps, including completing intake paperwork, meeting with your provider for a clinical interview, participating in standardized assessments, and reviewing results and recommendations, typically once your report is complete. Reports may vary in length and content depending on your personal needs (e.g., diagnostic considerations for referring providers, to inform treatment recommendations, for academic accommodations, etc.). 


Typically, the psychologist will send you questionnaires before your  first appointment, where you’ll complete the clinical interview. Then, you will complete formal assessment measures; these meetings typically last 1-3 hours and multiple sessions may be needed, depending on how extensive the test battery is. Test batteries typically include self-report questionnaires, informant-report questionnaires  (i.e., from family members or teachers), and standardized measures administered by psychologists. 


Once all data is collected, the psychologist will interpret the data to better understand your cognitive and emotional functioning. You will then meet again for a feedback session, where you will receive a diagnostic summary, treatment recommendations, and any necessary documentation.

Can I meet with the provider before committing to a full assessment?

Yes, we actually require it. You can meet with a testing psychologist for a 1 hour video consultation, to discuss your concerns and whether you may benefit from formal testing. The fee for this service is $330. In this consultation, you will go over your history, testing concerns and goals. The testing specialist will provide you with their recommendation on the type of testing you need and the time and cost it will be. They will give you a clearer estimate on the final cost for your full assessment.

How much does it cost?

Clinical psychologists and clinical neuropsychologists have specialized training to offer comprehensive assessment services, as they integrate a client’s clinical history with objective cognitive data to answer referral questions and provide individualized recommendations to clients. The first 1 hour consultation is $330 for all types of testing.

Full evaluations and assessments range in cost from $3,600 to $8,500 for Autism, depending on the complexity of the testing required and report that is needed. 

Full evaluations and assessments range in cost from $2,500 to $8,500 for ADHD, depending on the complexity of the testing required and report that is needed. 

Can I use my insurance?

We are not able to provide testing as an in-network service at this time. However, your insurance company may reimburse you for assessment services as an out-of-network service. Since this depends on your particular plan, we encourage you to consult with your insurance company prior to committing to an assessment.

Why would I want to go out of network?

We understand that using in-network benefits may present less of a financial burden. However, if you opt to stay within your network, you may have significant difficulty finding an approved provider, obtaining authorization and approval, and getting an appointment scheduled. Going out-of-network is usually much faster and more convenient. Additionally, our providers are reputable and well-trained to offer comprehensive assessment services for a wide range of referral questions and specific client needs.

How do I pay for testing?

For the first consultation, we charge the $330 fee at the day of the appointment. For the full testing, we charge half of your testing fee on the first day of testing, and the second half at the last feedback session when you will be receiving your report.

How soon can I schedule an appointment?

Consultations can typically be scheduled within a week.

For comprehensive testing, provider availability may vary. Depending on your availability for scheduling, it may take 1-2 weeks to begin the process. Generally you can get started within 1 week of your consultation.
