Psychological diagnostic testing can help identify a wide range of issues, including:

- Learning disabilities
- Behavioral disorders
- Developmental delays
The psychological evaluation may include both tests and assessments to gain a full picture of psychological issues.
Testing typically includes questionnaires, checklists, or surveys, which are standardized. These tools are used to rank your child's abilities in relation to others in a peer group.
Assessments can include interview information, medical records, a medical evaluation, or observations. Assessments also may include a wide range of interviews of parents, teachers, and others close to the child.
Psychological diagnostic testing is used by the child and family psychologist to diagnose limitations, traits, disabilities, and other conditions. A treatment plan can be developed which is designed to improve performance, behavior, and life skills.
