At KIN & KiDS, our team of “testing psychologists” headed by director, Charis Wong,  works very hard to continue being the top referral choice of many international schools, psychiatrists, doctors and care providers. We have had clients specially flying in from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China and other countries to seek our psychological evaluation services. Our evaluation reports have been accepted internationally for migration, special exam accommodation and specialized government-funded services. We have a wide range of the latest edition testing instruments/tools and many of our questionnaires are administered online for the convenience of our clients. 

Our psychological evaluation services are for both children and adults. Our clients have ranged from the age of 2 right till 70. We use a whole-person approach that identifies a client’s unique strengths and vulnerabilities through carefully selected instruments and evaluation procedures and integrative findings based on the information obtained. 

We aim to make the evaluation process a positive and meaningful experience for our clients. Many people have questions about what to expect when undergoing a psychological evaluation. Here is our typical processes:

The enquiry

Upon receiving an enquiry, our friendly clinical assistant will contact you to better understand the referral question and to answer your queries. Based on the referral question, we will carefully prepare a tailor-made battery of instruments/evaluation procedures to gain a better understand of a client’s cognitive, behavioural and emotional profile and to provide diagnostic clarification.  We will send you an estimate quote to give you an idea of the fees involved.

Clinical Interview and Screening

During our first meeting, our psychologist will clarify the purpose of the evaluation and current concerns. She will gather background information of client’s concerns and relevant family, medical, and educational histories. She may also administer screening tests. At the end of the session (75- 120 minutes), our psychologist will inform you about whether further evaluation is needed and will review the battery of instruments/procedures put together. Once you are ready to proceed with the full evaluation, we will schedule testing sessions.

Psychological Testing & Assessment

Our evaluation may include clinical observations, administration of valid and reliable psychometric instruments, and collateral information gathering like telephone interview, questionnaires, reviewing records/reports, and conducting observations. Each session often takes several hours and usually spreads out to two or three days. We will interpret the results carefully and thoughtfully in consideration of your context and culture and the rest of the information that we have obtained. We will base the diagnosis on criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). We will consider your strengths and vulnerabilities/challenges in making recommendations for intervention.
