Apricus Counseling

Testing

We offer a variety of testing modalities in order to support clients with their physical and emotional well being. These include diagnostic labs for metabolic, mitochondrial and environmental factors that affect mental health. Included in these labs is a full report as well as a meeting to walk the client through results and answer any questions.

We also provide psychological testing for children ages 6 through 18 years of age for struggles including learning or developmental difficulties, and behavioral issues such as inattention or hyperactivity. Each assessment includes a full set of tests that measure IQ, mood, adaptability and executive functioning. These are formally known as a full psychological battery. Per clinical judgment, we may then administer the Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fifth Edition; the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, Third Edition; the Behavior Assessment Scales for Children, Third Edition; the Brown Attention-Deficit Disorder Scales and/or the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, Third Edition depending on the needs of the client.

At the conclusion of psychological testing, the client will be provided with a psychological report that can be used for schooling or accommodations purposes. At this time, we do not bill insurance, but can provide a superbill for families to work with their insurances privately.

Diagnostic Labs

These labs are completed by an outside laboratory, after which our clinician will receive the results, write a report, and then review it with the client in order to understand the results and how to proceed for their health and well being.

*Please note that these tests are not billable to insurance. We will provide paperwork for you to file paperwork with you insurance company if you desire, but we highly recommend you check with your insurance company before filing as many tests are not covered. We cannot bill out of network for these tests.

About Our Testing:

Our clinicians strongly believe that you come to us because you desire not only a professional, but personal connection. Because of this, we will not utilize digital testing for any situation where the scores might be affected by outside factors. 

We believe that the client should be seen and heard in the diagnostic process. Each assessment will involve meeting with the client for a significant period of time. 

We want to make certain that you have time to ask questions and to understand the results of the test; because of this, a feedback session will be scheduled 3-4 weeks following the test to meet with the psychologist again.

  • A Full Comprehensive IQ test
