What is a psychological evaluation?
Typically, an evaluation consists of a one-on-one interview followed by a number of psychological instruments to assess and measure your current symptoms and emotional states, it takes approximately 2 hours. Results from the instruments are then scored and interpreted, and they are integrated into the narrative gathered from the interview. A report is then drafted within 14 days and sent confidentially to your attorney. Upon your attorney’s approval, a final report is mailed to the attorney handling your case.
The fee for a two hour evaluation and report is $900, if the report is needed within 7 days there is a $300 additional cost.
