The results of the assessment assist in diagnoses and treatment of normal and abnormal developmental, educational, medical, psychiatric, and neuropsychological difficulties.

Referrals are commonly made for the following:

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Educational Accommodations

Additionally, PsychBreak psychologists can screen for Autism Spectrum Disorders to determine if further testing with an Autism Spectrum Disorder specialist is necessary.
