Centro Castillo para Bienestar Personal y Familiar
Psychological Testing

What is it?

Psychological tests, also known as psychological assessments, help psychologists gain valuable information about you to clarify certain questions about diagnosis and aid in establishing the best course of action for managing educational or emotional difficulties. The information is gathered by interviewing you and paper and pencil tests are also given. Ultimately, the accuracy of the assessment depends how carefully and seriously you answer the questions you are asked.

Fees associated with testing:

Centro Castillo accepts most insurances; however, not all insurance plans offer the benefit of covering all or part of the cost to give, score, and write up a psychological assessment. Since the type and number of tests required varies depending on why the assessment is given, how long it takes for the psychologist to complete an assessment usually varies from 10 to 15 hours. Centro Castillo charges an hourly fee rather than a flat fee per assessment.
