We have a low-fee assessment program that provides reduced cost psychological assessments to members of the campus and off-campus community who meet income eligibility criteria. A member of our specialized assessment clinical team can conduct full psychological assessment batteries (cognitive, emotional, and projective testing), neuropsychological testing, learning disability assessments, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) assessments. We can consult with parents and schools about educational accommodations and coping with academic difficulties. Clients who are not eligible for our low-fee program still receive services at rates 40% lower than those charged in the private sector. Our staff and faculty are available for a wide range of professional consultations. With specialties covering broad topics such as early intervention, classroom management, issues in mental health, parent and teacher trainings, the development of clinical interventions, and specialized treatment protocols.  PSC clinicians and faculty can consult with your school, mental health organization, or parent/teacher group.
