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.
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. The only insurance carrier we are able to bill for comprehensive assessment is Willamette Valley Community Health. 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.
ADD and ADHD Assessments
We offer an abbreviated assessment for adults to diagnose attention and focus difficulties for $350. This abbreviated assessment is appropriate for those patients seeking diagnostic clarification and/or working with other providers regarding medication management or to inform treatment. This abbreviated assessment may not meet guidelines for seeking accommodations for difficulties in school or applying for public assistance. The above described learning disability/neuropsychological assessment is a better option.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We often have a waitlist, particularly during the summer months. Please take that into account along with the details below when factoring your timelines.
What to Expect
- You will meet with your clinician and do a clinical interview to find out what your concerns are and to get information on your experience in school and work.
- Typically it takes 3-4 appointments of a few hours each to complete the testing. Total time spent in testing sessions is usually 8-12 hours.
- 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.
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.
