We offer comprehensive psycho-educational and neuropsychological assessments for a variety of academic, attention, medical and emotional difficulties including:

  • learning disabilities
  • attention deficit (ADHD)

Our testing providers are graduate students from Pacific University's School of Graduate Psychology. Their clinical supervisors are licensed psychologists and Pacific University faculty members. Our testing providers are required by the American Psychological Association to securely record testing sessions to be viewed by their clinical supervisors.

We have updated our testing protocols for the Covid-19 era. Testing occurs through a combination of secure video and in person appointments with saftey protocols.

Comprehensive Learning Disability and Neuropsychological Assessments

Our comprehensive psychological assessments diagnose learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders (ADD & ADHD), memory problems, cognitive and emotional difficulties, and neuropsychological issues. We test patients of all ages, starting at 6 years old. Typical assessment patients we see are students experiencing academic problems and seeking accommodations from their school and people with medically related cognitive difficulties. We are not able to diagnose Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Our comprehensive assessment fee is calculated based on take home income and ranges from $625-$1,125. This fee is due at the first appointment. We are not able to bill insurance for any of the testing services described on this page. We are able to run HSA cards and supply clients with service documentation regarding their treatment and payments if they plan file a claim with their insurance carrier.

Scheduling Your Assessment

Contact our Assessment Coordinator, John Monahan, to get information about testing and get connected with an assessment clinician. He can be reached at 503-352-2404 or john.monahan@pacificu.edu. We typically have a waitlist to get started, please take that into account along with the details below when factoring your timelines.

What to Expect

  1. The first appointment involves a clinical interview to hear from you about why you are seeking testing and to collect background information on your health and education history.
  2. Typically it takes 3-4 appointments of a few hours each to complete the testing. 
  3. The interpretation and report writing process for your clinician and their supervising psychologist is labor intensive. We are typically able to provide the written report and feedback session approximately 6-8 weeks after the final testing session has been completed.

Recommendations/Accommodations

Our testing is comprehensive and so are our recommendations. We provide you with detailed information on what the problem is and what are some steps you can take to be more successful (e.g., in school, work). Our reports are usually accepted by universities/schools when needed to quality for accommodations/student support services. We meet with you for a final feedback session to go over the results of the testing and our recommendations. You will be given a copy of the written report at that time. We are also happy to send a copy of the report to other agencies/schools with your written permission.
