Assessments & Evaluations

Dr. Gandhi also specializes in providing assessment and evaluations. Psychological assessment can include a detailed study of how an individual learns, copes, interprets, behaves, and emotes. Assessment can help a person understand more deeply and thoroughly the why and the how of their experiences.

Dr. Gandhi can conduct psychoeducational assessments including IQ and achievement testing to help educators and parents understand how the student learns, their strengths and weaknesses and their overall cognitive functioning. She can also conduct personality assessments, aimed at gaining more information about diagnostics as well as helping the individual understand their coping styles and their interpersonal relationship styles among other things.

An initial intake appointment is made during which Dr. Gandhi asks a number of questions aimed at understanding what the presenting problem is for the patient. During the course of several additional sessions, Dr. Gandhi and the patient will complete the testing and feedback portion of the evaluation. A report documenting the results, interpretation, and recommendations is provided to the patient. The specific recommendations generated based on the evaluation are discussed at length with the interested parties during the feedback session.
