Psychological Testing

therapyPsychological testing is a way to better understand a person’s mood, behavior and capabilities.
Dr. Lori Ben-Ezra and her associates use psychological tests as a process of problem solving to help understand a person’s strengths and weaknesses.

A common use of psychological tests is to assist in educational planning.  A group of assessments will be used to provide insight into the specific challenges that a student might be facing.  In general, a psycho-educational battery will include tests to evaluate a child’s capabilities, academic achievement, motivation and behavior.  Dr. Ben-Ezra and her staff only use well-established tests that are acceptable for placement in gifted or learning disability programs or to receive extended time on standardized tests through the College Board.
