Diagnostic Assessment explores the nature and pattern of psychological symptoms from which an individual may or may not be suffering. While diagnostic formulations are most commonly used at the outset of psychological treatment, many measures are also useful in determining progress and course of treatment. In addition to DSM-IV-TR and DSM-V diagnoses, the information provided by a diagnostic assessment includes treatment recommendations and prognosis. Personality Assessment Intelligence Testing Learning Disability Evaluation Intellectual Deficits, Intellectual Disabilities, Mental Retardation, and Developmental Disability evaluations are intended to assist in the behavioral management, treatment, and well-being of adults living with mental and developmental challenges.
