Psychometric Evaluation

  • Developmental Delay

    • Developmental delay in the simplest form is a gap between a child’s mental age and chronological age. A delay in age appropriate skills may cause hinderance in the child’s daily living.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

    • The DSM 5 defines ASD as a persistent deficit in social communication and social interaction across
      multiple contexts such as social-emotional reciprocity, nonverbal communicative behaviors, developing, maintaining, and
      understanding relationships. Some of the other features may include stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, insistence on
      sameness, and hyper- or hypoactivity to sensory input.
    • Psychological evaluation for ASD includes gauging the child’s mental age and checking for severity while also keeping a close eye on other comorbidities such as ADHD.
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)/Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

    • ADHD is easily one of the most common childhood disorder. As the name suggests, the symptoms for it include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. The child may find it difficult to remain focused on the activity at hand or may get bored easily thus trying to engage in multiple activities at once. Lack of attention may also display itself as poor memory/recalling ability. The evaluation for ADHD includes checking for symptoms severity and looking for common comorbidities.
  • Learning Disabilities

    • Learning disabilities are neurologically based processing problems. These difficulties cause hinderance to the brain’s ability to receive, process, comprehend and or store information. Assessment of learning disabilities would involve gauging the child’s intellectual functioning, evaluating their reading-writing-spelling skill and neurological skills required for learning and processing.
  • Behavioral Assessments

    • Behavioral assessments are conducted to observe, describe and correct certain behavioral issue’s in children. These may range from temper tantrums to aggressive behavior. Behavioral assessment and modification can be useful in educational and daily living.
  • Emotional Disturbances and other psychological issues

    • Emotional problems are experienced by people of different age group. Understanding them through assessments help us help yourself. While many may dislike the concept of diagnosis, it’s important to understand that clinicians do not diagnose to label someone but to help understand the person better and aid their healing process.


Psychotherapy refers to a range of treatments that can help with mental health problems, emotional challenges, and psychiatric disorders.
It aims to enable patients, or clients, to understand their feelings, and what makes them feel positive, anxious, or depressed. This can equip them to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way.
There are a number of styles and approaches in psychotherapy one of them is the behavior therapy approach.

Cognitive Therapy

Cognitive therapy starts with the idea that what we think shapes how we feel. Changing these beliefs can change a person’s view of events, and their emotional state. Cognitive therapy looks at current thinking and communication patterns, rather than the past. The therapist works with the client to confront and challenge inappropriate thoughts by encouraging different ways of viewing a situation.

Behavior Therapy

Behavioral therapy helps clients to understand how changes in behavior can lead to changes in how they feel. It focuses on increasing the person’s engagement in positive or socially reinforcing activities. The goal is for desirable behavior responses to replace undesirable ones.
