The Assessment Clinic at The College of William and Mary School of Education is a collaborative effort between the Center for Gifted Education and the School Psychology Program. The Assessment Clinic conducts independent evaluations to determine the ability and achievement profiles of gifted and talented students in grades K-12. The assessment typically includes clinical interviews with students and parents, observation of the student, psychological/educational testing, and behavior rating scales. Assessments will include multiple measures, approaches, and sources of information. Upon completion of the assessment, a feedback session is scheduled to review results, discuss the interpretation of findings. A comprehensive report is also provided to the family.
The Assessment Clinic is designed to provide practical experiences in psychoeducational assessment for school psychologists-in-training. Advanced Master’s level and Educational Specialist level graduate students will conduct the assessments under the direct supervision of the School Psychology Program faculty (Drs. Hardinge, Lavach, Theodore, Ward) as part of practicum courses and experiences. All services are confidential.
This collaborative effort provides assessment services to the community as well as training opportunities to school psychology graduate students. All assessments are offered using a sliding-scale fee structure, based on family income.
Currently these assessment services are not available. Please check the website for updates.
