Assessment Services

What: The Baylor Center for Developmental Disabilities (BCDD) is offering assessment services. These assessments involve the administration of psychological measures to answer a specific referral question involving social, emotional, cognitive, or academic functioning. After testing is complete, the family will meet with the clinician to discuss the results and answer questions. Clinicians will also provide clients with a comprehensive report of the assessment results and diagnoses.

Who: Children and adolescents between the ages of 2-17 years of age. Assessments can be used to look at symptoms associated with developmental disabilities and related concerns. For example, assessments can be used to investigate concerns related to:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Developmental delays
  • Academic and learning concerns
  • Attention issues/ADHD
  • Social and emotional difficulties

When: Assessments are offered during the fall and spring semesters. A complete assessment involves an intake interview and a full day of testing, generally lasting 2-5 hours, as well as a follow-up feedback meeting to discuss results. A full assessment costs $500. Insurance is not accepted but scholarships may be available.

Where: Assessments are conducted in-person at the BCDD. To schedule your assessment, please contact our center at 254.537.1042.

Assessment services not offered at the BCDD: custody evaluations, mental status and/or court mandated psychological evaluations, alcohol and drug evaluations, medication/medical management services, hospitalization services and in-patient care, expert witness testimony, and sexual abuse forensic evaluation and interviews.
