The 3 Basic Steps for Psychological Testing includes
One of our Seoul Counseling Center Psychologists will discuss on the phone or meet with you for a pre-screening consultation to determine which testing areas are most appropriate for your situation. There may be times when this pre-screening is not necessary and a Parent Referral Form and/or School Referral Form may be used instead.
You will visit our Center to complete testing based on the pre-screening consultation. Depending on the area(s) tested, testing may include the following types of tests and tasks, which may be completed in a single day, or across multiple days:
- Computer-based tasks
- Cognitive & memory tasks
- Behavioral performance tasks
- Clinical questionnaires
- Clinical interviews
Approximately 4-6 weeks later, your Seoul Counseling Center Psychologist will meet with you for a 50-minute appointment to (a) review and explain the results (including any diagnoses), and (b) review and explain all relevant treatment recommendations and follow-up support options.
The Costs of Psych Testing
The Psychological Testing options above are typically done as part of a full-battery assessment, involving a variety of standardized tests and information collected from multiple informants.
The in-person testing can take 3-8 hours, with additional information gathering from other informants taking an additional 4-6 hours. Scoring tests, interpreting results, formulating diagnoses, writing up the report, and creating customized treatment recommendations can take an additional 6-8 hours.
This comprehensive assessment process can thus involve 10 to 25+ hours for the assessor. Fees typically range from $2000 to $4000, depending on the numbers of tests included. International Insurance usually covers testing fees at our center. Contact us for more details by filling out the Psych Testing Contact Form below.
