Assessment rates vary depending on the referral question. Usually, Psychological Assessment takes about 5-6 hours. For every hour spent with the client in assessment, Dr. Baumgardner will spend another 2 or 3 hours scoring and interpreting the tests. Even very simple assessments require 10-15 hours of a psychologist's time. In general, an assessment costs about the equivalent of 10 -15 hours of individual therapy. Please call to discuss your assessment needs with Dr. Baumgardner. She is well equipped to work with adults and with children. She is an expert in assessing most childhood conditions and is an outstanding educational consultant.
