American High School Academy

Cognitive, Developmental, Behavioral, & Academic Testing

Our team is dedicated to ensuring that your child receives the most thorough evaluation possible. We offer a wide variety of evaluations to assist you with your child's individual educational needs. Let us assist you today with your child's academic journey!

All testing services are provided by licensed, nationally certified school psychologists.

Cognitive Testing

Cognitive testing, more commonly known as Intelligence Quotient (IQ) testing, is used to better determine and understand general cognitive abilities. IQ testing is used to determine a person's general intelligence in relation to people of the same age.

Testing is usually 1-2 hours and is dependent on the individual. If your child is being evaluated, we recommend that you select a time of day when your child is most alert, make sure your child receives plenty of rest prior to testing, has eaten a well-balanced meal, and is feeling well. Furthermore, try not to place too much emphasis on the test session itself; instead, encourage your child to do the best they can.

Developmental & Behavioral Testing

Developmental Testing

Developmental testing is used to determine your child's developmental milestones in comparison to children of the same age. This type of evaluation provides parents the opportunity to better understand their child's strengths and weaknesses and may determine the presence of developmental delays.


Behavioral Testing

Behavioral testing is used to determine your child's behavioral difficulties, what function the behavior serves, and how the behavior may be affecting your child academically.

Examples of behaviors that are assessed include, but are not limited to: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder, Executive Functioning Disorders, and Social-Emotional concerns.

The cost of behavioral testing is covered under Medicaid and Medicare through Sunshine Health Insurance.

Academic Testing

Academic testing may assist in determining your child's levels of reading, writing, mathematics, and/or processing skills and may be used to identify your child's academic strengths and weaknesses.
