A clear diagnosis
& path to recovery

The Forum is a team of neuropsychologists and clinicians specializing in teen mental health. We offer comprehensive psychological evaluations for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18 in the San Diego community. Using validated measures and multiple examinations, we are able to accurately diagnose and treat your teenager.  

What is a Psychological Evaluation?

Psychological testing is a complex field. Our evaluations are multifaceted; first, our neuropsychologists will speak to your teenager one-on-one. Next, your teen will complete a set of paper-and-pencil and computer-based tests. These measures will show us their proficiencies and deficiencies in the areas of intellectual functioning, concentration, memory, executive functioning, language, and learning. Each set of tests is personalized to the reason that you were referred, ensuring that we have the best data to address your child’s issues.

The Value of Psychological Tests

We’re proud to say that our approach to psychological testing is both rigorous and effective. Depending on your teenager’s results, we can identify patterns, strengths, and weaknesses that combine to create a picture of their mental health.

This information is beneficial for a variety of reasons:

Your teen will receive the best possible care. Many of our patients come to us with a litany of former diagnoses that we find to be inaccurate. Their previous providers were giving them medications and therapies that addressed these incorrect diagnoses – not their real conditions. With a comprehensive psychological testing panel from The Forum, your teen will receive appropriate care from the outset.

You will save time and money. Plenty of parents have spent countless hours and large sums of money on therapists and medicines that proved to be ineffective. The Forum’s testing identifies psychological issues with pinpoint accuracy, ensuring that they receive expedient treatment tailored to their needs.

You will finally have answers. If your teen has always seemed a bit hyperactive and struggled to focus in class, you may have assumed it was their personality. With an appropriate diagnosis of ADHD, you can begin to request academic accommodations and make changes at home that will make your child’s life easier and happier.
