Testing


At Prevail Assessment & Wellness, P.C., we evaluate and test in a systematic way or phases.  We use what is considered to be the "golden star" best practice clinical standardized psychometric measurements . We will see you or your child for the first appointment and decided on what testing is needed and we test for only what is needed.  Each testing case is individualized.  From person to person, testing could include different tests and could be different prices depending on what the need is.  


Testing in Phases

The first phase is the evaluation or interview.  We will discuss what testing or rating scales are used first.  Usually this "first brush" of testing will help determine if additional testing is needed or if there was enough information collected to determine a diagnosis.  The second phase is the follow up of the first tests or rating scales.  We will score the tests, review results, and decide where to go from there.  It is possible that testing could stop after the third phase, it just depends on the case and the diagnosis we are trying to rule out.  If additional testing is needed, this is the third phase and testing could take 2 to 6 hours depending on what tests are decided on.  This will need to be scheduled at a time that fits our schedule.  The fourth and final phase will be reviewing all test results and finalizing diagnosis and recommendations.


Does Insurance Cover Testing

Prevail Assessment & Wellness, P.C. is not credentialed with insurance companies. 

Therefore, we will not bill insurance for tests administered.  Insurance could be used for the initial intake and follow up appointments for treatment.  We do offer reduced pricing for testing and payment options for testing. 


Pros to Private Testing vs Testing by the School

Pros:  Testing is PRIVATE and doesn’t automatically become part of your child’s school record. You don’t even have to tell the school. You don’t need the school to agree to testing. You also don’t need to share the results. 


Pros: You can have a private evaluation done at any time. The school doesn’t have to agree that it’s necessary.

​​Pros: You choose the evaluator.  The evaluator isn’t with the school, so can be impartial. Recommendations can be made without any school concerns.​


​Pros: Testing can be focused only on the area of concern. This can make the process go faster.


​Pros: Your child will get undivided attention in a setting that is private and confidential.
