Psychological Testing

From attention and motivation to behavior and mood regulation, understanding the issue deeper sometimes requires measurement and comparison to statistical norms.

About Psychological Testing

We have the value that, in order to provide excellent testing that encapsulates a person’s injury, the evaluator must first be an amazing therapist. All our evaluators were first trained as psychotherapists. The clinic’s testing program is distinctive in that all evaluators are trained in family dynamics in addition to psychological evaluation.

Lorenz Clinic offers comprehensive general psychological and psychoeducational testing for:

  • Children (ages 5-12)
  • Adolescents (ages 13-18)
  • Adults (general testing only)

Pediatric psychological testing is an especially specialized service in high demand. Like most clinics, there is typically a four to six-month waitlist for our testing services, but this can vary depending on each circumstance.

Become a Client for Testing

Candidates for testing must first become an established client with Lorenz Clinic. Clients will attend an outpatient diagnostic assessment session. The outpatient psychotherapist makes an initial assessment/diagnosis and recommendations for all clients.

  • A referral for a testing consultation can only be made by an outpatient psychotherapist, psychiatric provider, or primary day treatment clinician after they have established regular care with the client. 
    • External referrals are sent to our Outpatient Department to schedule a standard intake appointment.

Testing Process

  1. A client is referred for a testing consultation via our intake process. The client will be called to schedule and attend a testing consultation appointment. This wait is approximately 4 to 6 months.
  2. The clinician providing the testing consultation will determine if testing is a medically necessary service.   
    1. If testing is recommended, the provider will submit a prior authorization to the client’s insurance and the client will be added to the Clinic’s testing queue.
    2. If testing is not recommended, the client will be provided with recommendations and next steps.
  3. Testing administration will take place at the Rosemount Clinic offices. Psychological testing involves the performance of diagnostic tests and/or therapeutic procedures aimed at better elucidating the view of the client, the problems they face, and how to best bring about change. 
  4.  A feedback session will also be scheduled, to occur approximately  2-weeks after the final testing sessions.
  5. Two weeks after the follow up session a written report will be sent to the client/guardian.
