Psychological Testing / Assessment

The Des Moines Pastoral Counseling Center is your resource for a variety of forms of psychological testing. We offer intelligence assessment (IQ), learning disorder testing, adaptive behavior, assessment of developmental challenges, Autism Spectrum assessment, testing for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), emotional functioning/personality assessment, memory testing, and testing for differential diagnosis for clients of all ages (children through older adults).

We also offer specific testing for children, including in-depth learning disorder testing (reading, math, receptive and/or expressive language, nonverbal learning, etc.), screening for specific conditions (e.g., Autism Spectrum, Selective Mutism, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, etc.), and Intellectual Disability Waivers (previously called MR Waiver).

For adults and older adults, we offer specialized psychological assessments for career change and vocational counseling, international adoption, bariatric surgery, and clergy candidates; screenings for specific conditions; and basic neuropsychological status evaluations (e.g., dementia/Alzheimer’s, ADHD, differential diagnosis, etc.). We also offer some forensic (i.e., court-involved) testing services to clients, agencies, and attorneys.

Testing is offered on both an insurance and sliding scale basis.
