Explain that he/she will be asked to complete some thinking activities during the appointment, either using paper-and-pencil or on an iPad. Please refrain from telling your young child that he/she is coming into the office to play, as this sets up unrealistic expectations and may be disappointing to the child. Instead, explain to your child that he/she will participate in “activities” and that it is important that they give their best effort.


Please assist your child in getting a good night’s sleep the night before the testing day and ensure that they have breakfast. A nice relaxing morning (e.g., refrain from video games or highly stimulating activities prior to the evaluation) will help the child to perform at their optimal level of ability.


Receiving coaching or tutoring specifically for this test is strongly discouraged and any indication that this has occurred will be included in the report.

Testing Day

The psychologist will briefly meet with the parent(s) of the child to assure the purpose of testing and any factors that could potentially impact the test results (e.g., bilingualism, ADHD, motor challenges).


Testing will be conducted by the psychologist. The length of the testing session can vary by age, ranging from 45 minutes to 80 minutes. The length of the testing session can be influenced by factors such as the pace at which the child responds. Parent or legal guardian must remain in the building during testing.


At the end of the testing session, testing protocols are scores and interpreted. The psychologist will then meet briefly with the parent(s) to discuss the results of the evaluation and to clarify or answer any questions or concerns regarding the testing process or results. A final report is provided to parents and requested schools by the end of the day.
