(Psychological, Behavioral, and Social assessment): It includes evaluation of general intelligence, emotional and behavioral current status and predispositions, as well as recommendations and prognosis. It may also include an assessment of academic achievement.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all evaluation. Each one will be tailored to you and your needs. The tests and assessments chosen will be specific for you.
In general, you can expect to spend anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes at the evaluation. Prior to the evaluation, you may be asked to write down your symptoms, thoughts, and emotions.
During the evaluation, it’s important to be honest about your current state of mind, your history, and your day-to-day challenges. This will better inform your mental health professional’s understanding of who you are and what may need to be done next.
