Individual Assessment

Individual Assessment

The intelligence assessments we most often administer is the Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children (WISC-V). In some situations, we provide the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scales of Intelligence (WPPSI-IV) or the Differential Abilities Scale (DAS-II). The specific test selected may vary according to the specific needs of your child. An assessment will consist of an interview and formal intelligence testing, later to be followed by a formal interpretive feedback session and written report of the results.

Appointments last about between 1.5 and 2.5 hours. The GMU Cognitive Assessment Program (CAP) is committed to providing appointments as soon as possible following the initial telephone intake.

Once you have a testing appointment set with us, your examiner will schedule an approximately 20 minute long virtual call with you in order to review consent forms, gain some background information about your child, and to answer any questions.<.p>

Payment of $390 for cognitive testing is due on the day of testing, unless your child qualifies for a fee reduction.

We are committed to providing your results via a virtual interpretive conference and a personalized report within 30 days of testing.
