PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT

When children and adolescents experience difficulties at school, it can be challenging to discern the precise nature of the problem. We are equipped to provide comprehensive psycho-educational testing for attention, academic and learning disorders, and an array of behavioral and emotional issues. The information from these assessments can provide great insight in understanding your child’s struggles at school and how to overcome them.

The goal of a psycho-educational assessment is to identify the most relevant factors contributing to your child’s school-related problems with accuracy and precision. Through a comprehensive report and feedback on test results, we provide practical recommendations for parents and teachers about how they can improve a child’s learning experience.

PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT

PSYCHO-DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENT

Sometimes we know that we are struggling with something, but we can’t seem to figure out what it is. At times, other health professionals or clergy may even suggest that a psychological problem may be present but greater clarity is needed. For adults, we employ proven psychological techniques and state of the art tools to perform comprehensive psycho-diagnostic and personality assessments – based in the holistic Catholic vision of the human person. We strive to contemplate with you the mystery of your personhood. We can use this information to help guide and enhance your therapy or simply to help you gain perspective and find solutions for difficulties occurring at home, school, work, and beyond.

VOCATIONAL ASSESSMENT

VOCATIONAL ASSESSMENT

When a man or a woman desires to pursue a priestly or religious vocation, a psychological evaluation is often a required step. The purpose of this evaluation is to understand the human strengths and weaknesses of the candidate. This information can help in discernment of whether it is prudent to pursue a priestly or religious vocation at the present time as well as provide important guidance for one’s human formation.

We are well-equipped and pleased to provide these psychological evaluations. We approach this work informed by a Catholic view of the person, a respect for the sacredness of priestly and religious vocations, and exceptional psychological rigor. We invite candidates and Vocations Directors to contact us so that we can discuss how we can put our passion for performing vocational assessments at the service of the Church.
