Why Do People Request Psychological Testing?
Psychological testing provides important information about how individuals think, feel, behave, attend, learn, remember, and cope. Testing can be used to determine attention and learning disabilities and to better understand intellectual, behavioral, and emotional functioning. Additionally, an assessment identifies individual strengths, challenges, and ability to function at school, work, or in personal life in order to provide recommendations that foster improvement and success.
