Additional Information Evaluations consist of an interview plus the completion of paper-and-pencil and/or computerized tests to measure achievement, ability, aptitude, and vocational interests. No physical examination is involved and all activities take place at a desk. Please bring your résumé or a list of your education, training, and work experience. If you have school transcripts, employment records, or related materials, please bring them. As this can be a lengthy appointment, you may wish to bring a drink or snack. Please bring your reading glasses (if required) and any assistive devices that you currently use. You may wish to bring your medication to the appointment; for example, bring pain medication if you usually take it during the day or think you may need it. The night before the appointment, try to get a good night's sleep and refrain from using alcohol or intoxicants. Take your usual medication (usual time, dosage) on the day of the assessment, unless you feel that it will substantially interfere with testing.
Illness We have a "no handshake" and "masking" policy. If you are ill (i.e., cold, flu, fever, cough, sore throat, respiratory infection, etc.), suspect you are coming down with an illness, or have been in close contact with a ill individual, please reschedule. I reserve the right to decline any referral or reschedule an appointment due to infectious illness.
Terms Fees are $400 per hour plus travel and ancillary costs. A 50% cancellation fee (based on the anticipated total fee) will be levied for cancellations received within 72 hours of the appointment, or in accordance with a prior arrangement. Payment in full is respectfully requested within 45 days of the issuance of a report, unless otherwise arranged.
