DePelchin offers psychological testing when there is need to evaluate a child’s intellectual, academic, emotional or behavioral functioning. Testing enables our psychologists to more accurately identify underlying issues, so they can develop a treatment plan that best addresses a child’s needs. DePelchin’s only available testing appointments are currently with supervised interns who have completed a master’s in psychology and are working on completion of their doctoral degree in psychology. A licensed staff psychologist monitors all testing performed by interns. If you are a current DePelchin client, please contact your DePelchin clinician or psychiatrist for further information regarding testing services.
Psychological testing typically includes an initial evaluation followed by a number of testing sessions and completion of a written evaluation report for families. Psychological testing is currently only available at DePelchin’s main campus and Katy location.
Additionally, DePelchin conducts independent education evaluations (IEEs) primarily in the area of autism (but depending on the needs of the family and the school district, will consider other eligibility areas) that may provide eligibility for special services. Our assessments are supervised by a licensed specialist in school psychology (LSSP) and are offered when a specific diagnosis of ASD, in addition to educational need, is in question. DePelchin also supports children and families through other mental health services, including psychiatry and counseling.
DePelchin accepts a range of Medicaid and Chip plans for psychological testing. For families whose insurance does not cover psychological testing, DePelchin offers testing at various price levels. DePelchin charges standard fees for testing performed by our licensed staff psychologists. We also offer discounted rates for testing performed by a member of our psychology team, including interns who have completed a master’s in psychology and are working on completion of their doctoral degree in psychology or postdoctoral fellows who have their Ph.D. and are completing their requirements for licensure in psychology. A licensed staff psychologist monitors all testing performed by postdoctoral fellows and interns.
