Psychological Testing

At Midwest, testing is personal.

 

We take our time to understand you.

Our psychological and neuropsychological testing evaluations weave together in-depth information into thorough clinical reports.

Discovering what is at the root of your daily struggles requires careful clinical assessment. We use the most empirically validated instruments and take our time with thorough one-on-one interviews to arrive at our diagnostic impressions. At the end of the process, you will walk away with a detailed report, an explanation of what we think may be causing your symptoms, and recommendations for next steps in your care.

Initial consultations

Like any major healthcare decision, we believe it’s important for you to know what to expect. We start every evaluation by sitting down with you to explain the steps involved in the testing process, the kind of information we will be gathering, and what you will be asked to do. This step also allows us to understand what you are struggling with and if/how we can help. There is no single test that can tell if you have a specific disorder (like ADHD).

Using this information, we select specific tests just for you.

Common reasons clients are tested at Midwest:

  • diagnosing ADHD with confidence
  • identifying Autism and neurodivergence
  • distinguishing appropriate psychological diagnoses
  • understanding the role of trauma
  • conceptualizing complex personality patterns
  • investigating why the usual treatments have not worked

 

The financial side

We provide an estimate of insurance coverage to every potential new testing client. We will help secure preauthorization for the testing if your insurance requires it. If you need out-of-network coverage or to pay out-of-pocket, let us discuss the expected costs with you.

 

The end result

The testing process takes around 1 month from the official start (test administration and clinical interview). We gather the data from your testing, interpret it in light of your history and background, and create a comprehensive report. We review all of our findings with you directly and plan time to answer your questions. When the process is complete, you will leave with your testing report and a personalized set of recommendations for next steps.
