Referral Questions

A question always precedes psychological testing. Some want to know more about their personality; some want to know if they have a mental illness; some want to know if their child has a developmental disability like autism; some wonder whether they or their child have a learning disability; some simply wonder why their child is doing poorly in school. Whether general or specific, whether about one’s self or a family member, whether asked by a lay person or professional, these questions are the reason why assessment is sought. Consequently, these questions should be answered. Sometimes the answer is concrete and singular, sometimes it is abstract and plural, but in either case an answer should be given. At times, psychological testing will fail to find the answer to the referral question. In such cases, every effort is made to provide appropriate referrals to other professionals and assessment procedures that can provide the sought for answers.
