During their career, psychologists develop an in-depth understanding of a large variety of psychometric tools that can be used.

Testing can be used in a variety of informative and helpful ways. Markham Psychological Services offers assessment and general psychological testing in Richmond Hill.

We are a multi-service health and psychology clinic that has years of experience in providing assistance to our clients, including objective psychological testing in Markham. Our registered clinical psychologist is always available to understand your requirements and provide you with the assistance that you require. 



What Are Psychological Tests?

In simple terms, a psychological test intends to assess and understand a person's functioning and behaviour to determine a conclusion, which could be a diagnosis. Psychological tests acquire information about how people think, feel, behave and react. The findings of the test might be used to prepare a report about the test taker's abilities and behaviour. This psychological report might then determine the individual's treatment plan. These tests might even be required for other purposes. For instance, they can be incredibly helpful for young adults in the case of career planning. They're used in diverse fields, ranging from education to the legal system. 

When you come to us for psychological testing in Richmond Hill, we will examine your purpose and provide you with tailored testing services. Besides this, we also offer rehabilitation and counselling services to our clients. 

Why Is Psychological Testing Helpful?

We provide psychological testing in Richmond Hill for countless purposes. It is helpful in many ways, such as:

  • In conjunction with a clinical interview, testing can be beneficial to establish or confirm a diagnosis that provides the foundation for designing a treatment plan for the patient.

  • Insurance companies may request a psychological assessment to determine the current psychological functioning of the client. Testing is more objective, and therefore the findings assist rehabilitation consultants in making informed, substantiated decisions. This could include authorization of further treatment and continued benefits.

  • Legal representatives often advise their clients to undergo an assessment to obtain more insight into the history and the actions that have resulted in legal charges. This information can be helpful not only to the client but their legal representatives and the court. You should ask your lawyer to provide a focus for the assessment by indicating some of the questions they are expecting the assessment to address. This will be helpful to the psychologist.



The Assessment Process

The psychologist will explain the assessment process and encourage you to ask questions to fully ensure you understand the process. Your written permission and consent for an assessment is required. Your interview may take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours. If you require an interpreter, the discussion takes longer. It would not be unusual for you to undergo close to 3 hours of testing. The psychologist will arrange for the scoring of the tests or inventories and carefully review your results. The report will contain the content of the interview data and the test findings. Finally the assessment will provide conclusions and treatment recommendations.
