The Wright Institute Assessment Clinic

The Wright Institute Assessment Clinic offers low-fee psychological and neuropsychological testing for children (age six and above), adolescents and adults. Testing, diagnosis, and recommendations are provided by Wright Institute doctoral students under the supervision of licensed clinical psychologists and board-certified neuropsychologists. Following evaluations, clients receive direct feedback and written reports to clarify assessment results for them. We also work with referring practitioners to integrate results into continuing treatment.

"The Wright Institute Assessment Clinic training program greatly expanded my knowledge of psychometrics and my ability to make use of complex and sometimes conflicting test data. There's no doubt that advanced assessment skills set me apart in subsequent internship and postdoctoral applications and led to my dream job as a juvenile forensic evaluator."
