Testing and Assessment | Teens & Young Adults
In addition to the initial screening by a trained counselor and ongoing assessment conducted in the field by therapists and staff, WinGate also makes a variety of testing available.
Every teen or young adult for whom substance abuse is suspected is given the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI-3), which identifies client's risk for having a substance use disorder.
We also facilitate many other types of testing by trained clinical psychologists. Please contact the Admissions team for pricing. There are many different types of test made available at WinGate. These include:
Vocational Testing Provided In This Therapeutic Program
We make arrangements with independent clinical psychologists to do vocational testing. Vocational testing can be particularly useful for teens or young adults who may not have figured out what career they want to pursue. These assessments examine which occupations best fit with an individual’s abilities, interests, and personality.
For teens or young adults who are trying to reorient their lives and may be deciding to pursue a career for the first time, vocational tests can be invaluable. Contact us for rates.
Academic Testing Provided For Young Adults
We can also arrange to have our clients tested for academic aptitude and achievement. Intelligence tests can help identify both a client’s real potential and can help identify learning disorders that may be blocking them from achieving that potential.
In addition, many clients have had a poor track record of academic performance as a result of behavior issues that may be may be distorting perceptions of their actual level of learning. Achievement testing can help highlight the academic areas where they have had success as well as those that still need some work. Contact us for rates.
Personality Testing Offered to Teens and Young Adults
Teens and Young adults and their families can arrange to have personality testing done through WinGate. These are the “standard” psychological assessments that can help identify psychological issues that the client may be struggling with such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, and more.
These assessments can be a good supplement to the psychological assessment done by the therapist and can help the process of therapy by highlighting areas to be addressed in the courseof therapy. Contact us for rates.
