Psychological Assessment

Psychological Testing Services

The Triumph Center provides comprehensive psychological evaluations of children, adolescents, and young adults. Our evaluations assess each person’s unique cognitive, behavioral and/or social-emotional functioning in order to assist with diagnostic clarification, as well as educational and treatment planning.  We work collaboratively with parents, schools and agencies to address concerns by providing practical and evidence based recommendations.

Comprehensive Psychological Evaluations

Our evaluations examine the individual’s overall neuropsychological functioning (cognitive, social-emotional, learning).  We tailor our evaluations to the needs of the individual by including the most relevant measures.  Our testing batteries include: standardized cognitive and educational tests, personality measures, projective techniques, clinical interviews, neurodevelopmental history, observations, and various questionnaires.

  • What to expect prior to the scheduled testing date: Interview to gather history and concerns. In some cases, the interview is done on the day of testing.
  • What to expect on the day of testing: Testing is typically completed in one full-day session at our office.
  • What to expect after testing is completed: The psychologist will write a report and will schedule a feedback session upon its completion. If applicable, families can request that the evaluating psychologist(s) attend school-based meetings to present results and discuss recommendations.

School Referrals

Our psychologists and clinical staff have been working closely with schools in the North Shore and Greater Boston areas for over twenty-seven years.  We welcome the opportunity to speak with you to discuss how we can support and assess your students so that they can become more successful learners and build healthier relationships in and outside the school community.
