Green Mountain Psychology offers guidance as to which type of evaluation is most appropriate.
We offer evaluations for educational, psychological, medically necessary, and forensic purposes.
Comprehensive evaluations focus on differential diagnosis.
All evaluations include the opportunity to meet with the psychologist after the report is completed to ask questions and discuss the report.
Neuropsychological evaluations offer the most information about brain functioning and behavior. Neuropsychological evaluations are frequently requested when an individual has a history of concussion or traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, brain tumor, cancer treatment, and/or neuropsychological or neuro-developmental differences.
Thorough evaluation is necessary for understanding what is the root cause of an individual’s struggles, and knowing this gives professionals the ability to recommend the most appropriate interventions and treatment options.
Evaluations include assessment of ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Mood Disorders, Learning Disorders, Substance Dependence, Personality Disorders, Trauma, and other mental health problems.
These evaluations are geared toward differential diagnosis. In other words, in addition to answering the referral question (for example, “Do I have ADHD?”) the psychologist will look for what is causing your symptoms.
