Diagnostic Testing & Assessment

The GMU Center for Community Mental Health offers a comprehensive range of psychological and psychoeducational testing services for children as young as 6 yrs., adolescents and adults.

  • Comprehensive psycho-educational assessments for children as young as 6 yrs. and adults to assess for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disorders, cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses, mental health issues and provide recommendations to improve academic, vocational, or life success.

  • Intellectual assessments with a standardized instrument such as one of the Wechsler scales, the Differential Ability Scales, or the Stanford-Binet.

  • Assessment of academic achievement in areas of arithmetic, reading, written language. The Center is able to administer the Nelson Denny Reading Test as required by many adolescent/adult testing services.

  • Psychological assessments other than those directly related to learning or attention typically include assessment of general intellectual ability, adaptive functioning, personality, and social-emotional functioning.

In addition to the assessment services offered at CCMH, we are pleased to share information about a new program at Mason. The Center for Comprehensive Assessment Services (CAS) also provides comprehensive psychological and psychoeducational evaluations to children and adolescents, ages 5 to 17.

You are welcome to place your child on the request for services list at both CCMH or CAS . Please note that while these programs are both proudly affiliated with George Mason University, we do NOT communicate, coordinate or share client information between programs.
