Psychological Testing


Psychological tests are a way of testing behavior, personality, and capabilities. It can also provide information about an individual that is helpful for the others in that individual’s life to be aware of, such as parents, family members, teachers, doctors, social workers, and mental health professionals, so they are able to support and help that individual improve functioning.
