Psychological & Neuropsychological Services

We offer a range of psychological and neuropsychological evaluations to assess numerous presenting concerns, including ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, cognitive and memory concerns, anxiety and mood disorders, trauma-related disorders, and other psychological and neuropsychological difficulties. The main purpose of the assessment is to gain a better understanding of a person and their behavior. Our assessments are tailored to the needs of the client and presenting concern.

The evaluation can include cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning, as well as other key aspects of development and functioning, including interpersonal relationships, social skills, sociocultural influences, physical maturation, health, and trauma. Evaluations measure an individual’s functioning at a specific point in time and provide a “snapshot” of a person.

Psychological evaluations provide diagnostic clarification and inform treatment interventions around key aspects of development and functioning, thoughts, emotions, mood, behavior, memory, interpersonal relationships, social skills, socio-cultural influences, physical maturation, and health.

Neuropsychological evaluations assess in greater detail things such as memory, attention, information processing, sensory perception, language, fine motor skills, visual-spatial skills, social perception/cognition, and other neurocognitive processes and provide recommendations for remediating any identified deficits. These evaluations are appropriate for autism, complex ADHD, executive functioning difficulties, social emotional concerns, cognitive and memory testing for older adults, and other neurological concerns. These evaluations are often in conjunction with educational and/or speech and language testing.

Psychoeducational evaluations combine psychological/neuropsychological testing and educational testing. These are appropriate for questions of learning disabilities and significant academic difficulties or lack of progress in reading, writing or math.

Hampshire & Franklin Counties REACH Collaboration: We have partnered with Hampshire & Franklin Counties REACH to offer autism evaluations for their clients under 3 years old. Please click here for more information.

Clinical Diagnostic Assessment: This assessment involves a comprehensive consultation and clinical interview, review of records, diagnostic impressions, and specifically tailored recommendations. This is appropriate for questions regarding emotional difficulties, adult autism questions where traditional testing may not be appropriate, trauma-related concerns and questions, and anxiety or mood-based difficulties. You can discuss this option during your consultation appointment.

Assessments for Older Adults: We offer baseline cognitive testing, cognitive screening, cognitive and memory evaluations, and memory specific evaluations for older adults. This is appropriate for concerns regarding dementia, Alzheimer’s or other medically related diagnoses that can impact cognition and memory.

In addition to assessments, we offer Intelligence Testing (IQ) for Private School Admissions and Giftedness, Emotional Support Animal (ESA) assessments for documentation, psychotherapy, and psychoeducational workshops and therapeutic groups. If you are interested in any of these non-assessment services, please email  or call at 413-584-0265.

We value comprehensive evaluations to gain an understanding of as many aspects of an individual and their sociocultural context as is possible. We also acknowledge the limitations of the testing process, including standardized testing measures and the one-on-one nature of the testing environment.

We are actively expanding our knowledge and incorporate recent research concerning individuals socialized as female (AFAB) on the autism spectrum. While standardized testing measures will always be behind the need for clinical application, we are continuously seeking training and utilizing current best practices to sensitively discern autism symptoms across gender identities, sociocultural contexts, and throughout the developmental lifespan.

Our comprehensive evaluations consist of a mixture of quantitative and qualitative data gathering along with thorough review of developmental history, clinical interview, treatment history, previous evaluations, self (depending on age) and observer report measures. Collateral reports from teachers, parents, social supports and/or other professionals are necessary to the testing process. In order to evaluate children and the difficulties that arise in the context of peers, we strongly suggest a school observation as part of these kinds of evaluations.
