Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC)
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children is a comprehensive measure of a child’s intellectual ability. The assessment involves a powerful set of 16 optional process-oriented subtests that assess different facets of intelligence.
Test age range: 6 -16 years
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS)
The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale is a comprehensive measure of an adult’s intellectual ability that includes a full-scale IQ score in addition to index scores that measure different facets of intelligence.
Test age range: 16 – 89 years
Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS)
The Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS) is a comprehensive measure of adult memory functioning and assessed both auditory and visual memory. The results of a memory assessment help an individual develop effective strategies to retain information to aid future learning processes. Research into the WMS has found the psychological assessment tool to be valid and reliable. The results from the test can also be used to provide further insight into an individual’s performance on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale.
Test age range: 16 – 89 years
Our vocational assessment includes the following assessments as well as two individual sessions with your psychologist.
Based on John Holland’s RIASEC theory, this is a career assessment and exploration tool that matches individual’s aspirations, activities, and talents to the career choices and educational opportunities that fit best for that person.
Career Drivers Assessment
This assessment measures eleven Career Drivers — motivational engines for power in your career choices and in your everyday work. The closer the work you do matches your top Career Drivers, the more opportunity you have for success by any measure. The more distant the work you do every day is from the description of your Drivers, the more dissatisfaction, unrest and stress you are likely to experience in your work life.
NEO Personality Inventory
A personality inventory that examines a person’s Big Five personality traits (openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism). It provides a systematic assessment of emotional, interpersonal, experiential, attitudinal, and motivational styles.
Test age range: +16 years
