Psycho-educational Evaluations and Assessments for Teens

Reliable & Effective Services

The Norooz Clinic Foundation is a non-profit public service and educational organization.

Having your troubled teen get a psychological evaluation is an important step in getting the right help for your teen.

What Is a Psychological Evaluation?

A psychological evaluation is a thorough process of assessment and screening administered by an adolescent psychologist. The methods used for the evaluation will depend on your teen's needs. It may consist of a series of formal or structured psychological or neuropsychological tests as well as clinical interviews designed to identify and describe the emotional, behavioral or learning problems that may be contributing to the problems your teen is having.A psychological evaluation should be considered in cases where there is uncertainty about the reasons your teen is having problems with mood, behavior, or learning.


The role of the psychologist doing the evaluation is similar to a detective looking for clues to solve a mystery. The more clues that can be identified, the more information you'll have to understand what's going on with your teen and decide what options are best suited to help them.

What Information Can a Psychological Evaluation Provide?

A psychological evaluation can provide useful information about your teen to include:

  • the severity of symptoms of depression or anxiety
  • the presence of a learning disability
  • academic strengths and weaknesses
  • root causes of emotional problems
  • positive and negative coping styles
  • reasons for aggressive behavior
  • information about how your teen views the world
  • issues or conflicts your teen is struggling with
  • insight into your teens’ personality style

What Information Can a Psychological Evaluation Provide?

All our services are completely confidential and supervised by a clinical supervisor. Your teen will typically meet one-on-one with one of our caring & expert staff to complete a testing battery that is designed based on their needs. Assessment may require scheduling multiple blocks of time (2-6 hours) depending on the testing, along with a final feedback session where we provide you with the results and our recommendations. 

A copy of the report will also be given to you to use, and can be sent to your teen’s school if requested.
