Psychological Testing Process
At the initial meeting, we spend about 90 minutes reviewing the examinee’s history and determining if psychological testing is needed. If testing is for a child, the initial meeting is only for parents; if testing is for a teenager, we can discuss their maturity level to see if concerns/issues can be openly discussed in front of them.
After initial meeting and the decision to move forward is made, the testing process will begin. Typically, the entire process takes around 3-5 weeks.
Depending on the type of assessment and the schedule of the client, testing will generally range from 1 to 3 sessions or days. During this time, the IPAS tester will administer a series of written, verbal, and electronic tests.
Following testing, IPAS will prepare a written report. During the feedback session, results are presented to the examinee with a thorough explanation. Each finding and related recommendations will be discussed.
Payment and Cost:
Pricing for testing ranges from $3,000 – $5,500. The cost for a therapeutic assessment will be evaluated on an individual basis after an initial meeting and may fall outside of this range. All fees are comprehensive and include all materials and reports, no add ons. The only time additional fees would be considered is for school visits or other outside meetings. We often have clients who wish to revisit the test results months after the feedback session, which we consider part of the process, part of an on-going conversation about your results.
IAS does not accept insurance, but we are always happy to do everything we can to help clients get reimbursed by their insurance companies.
Psychological Testing Assessment: $400/hour
This cost includes:

The initial meeting for psychological testing is billed at the rate of $300 for a 75-minute session, and it is pro-rated for actual time used. If a client does not proceed with testing, then the hourly fee is due at the end of the initial meeting. If a client does proceed with testing, the hourly rate for the initial meeting will be applied to the entire balance for the assessment.
A 50% deposit is due prior to the first testing session and the balance is due at the final meeting. Families are welcome to pay by personal check or credit card, at the time of service. Families that pay by personal check, money order, or cashier’s check can receive a 5% discount.
