Psycho-Educational Evaluations 

Psychological Evaluations
The Psychological evaluations completed by Dr. Roberson are clinical in nature, often focusing on conditions which require a medical consult.   This type of evaluation requires from 2 to 8 hours of testing, plus an equal number of hours for scoring and report writing.  The evaluation begins with a one-hour interview for the collection of history and records.  Then testing is arranged as needed.  The evaluation may cover specific concerns such as anxiety, depression, attention difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsiveness, memory concerns, and many other disorders. Such evaluations are sometimes covered by insurance.  

Psycho-Educational Evaluations
The Psycho-Educational evaluations completed by Dr. Roberson are heavily educational by nature, and are not covered by insurance.  This in-depth type of evaluation requires 6 to 10 hours of testing, plus several hours of report writing.  The evaluation begins with an interview for the collection of history and records.  Then testing sessions are arranged to evaluate the areas of intelligence, achievement, visual-motor development, behaviors, and personality.  The evaluation may also include testing for specific concerns such as listening comprehension difficulties, pragmatic language difficulties, or memory concerns.
