Psychological Assessment Services in Los Angeles, CA

Psychological Assessment Services

Psychodiagnostic testing can distinguish the psychological contributions to behavior that may confound accurate diagnosis and treatment. When faced with concerns regarding a child's performance in school, psychoeducational testing may be warranted. It can help college or graduate school students who are struggling academically to determine learning disabilities and assist them in receiving testing accommodations.

Dr. Tansman will meet with you for an initial session in which she will gather all relevant history and current symptoms. The testing is then tailored to the referral question. After testing is completed, a comprehensive report with recommendations will be provided and any questions or concerns will be addressed during the final session.
