Pre-employment and employment screenings and FITNESS FOR DUTY evaluations

Dr. Weatherly conducts professional pre-employment and ongoing employment evaluation services. On the day of testing, plan to spend 2-3.5 hours in the office. A comprehensive clinical interview will be conducted by Dr. Weatherly, and several standardized psychometric testing instruments will be administered by Dr. Weatherly or a trained psychometrician. Results will be compiled and delivered to the referral source in a hard copy or electronic format several weeks after the in-person appointment. 

PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS- WHAT TO EXPECT:

The comprehensive psychological evaluation process usually consists of two to three appointments:  

 

  • Prior to the first appointment, referral materials and information us received and reviewed by Dr. Weatherly, who will call with any questions or needed clarifications. The initial in-person appointment includes a diagnostic interview with the client or parent(s) and children lasting approximately one hour, followed by testing using standardized assessment instruments. At the time the evaluation appointment is scheduled, parent(s) or clients will be emailed several questionnaires which should be completed prior to your appointment. These will include a developmental history, behavior measures, child development measures, and questionnaires specific to the testing context or referral question (e.g., ADHD, Autism Spectrum, Employment, Bariatric/Surgical. PTSD- or trauma-related, etc.). For children, the process also typically includes a questionnaire for your child’s teacher(s) or another caregiver who interacts with your child on a regular basis. In the interview, Dr. Weatherly will collect information about your child’s developmental history, relevant family history and background, functioning at home and in school or childcare, any previous testing and intervention services, and recent events surrounding the reason for the current evaluation.

Evaluations for children:

 

  • On the day of your child's appointment, there may also be additional parent-report measures administered to obtain detailed data regarding the child’s communication skills, social-emotional skills, independent self-care and daily living skills, and/or typical behaviors. Direct assessment of children younger than four years of age takes place with parents present in the room. Older children may be evaluated separately or with parents in the room, depending on the child’s ability to separate from the parents and the level of the child’s communication skills. Typically, older children and adolescents will be evaluated separately from parents. The direct assessment portion of the evaluation typically lasts between two and three hours.  

 

  • Dr. Weatherly uses a selection of different standardized tests and measures depending on the age of the child and the presenting problem(s). Evaluations typically include an assessment of intellectual functioning/level, speech and language (expressive and receptive skills), social interaction skills, and assessment of developing personality and emotional functioning. Assessments for school-aged children and adolescents generally also include attention, memory, academic skills, and executive function testing via standardized, empirical testing instruments.  

 

For all clients:

 

  • The final appointment is an individual or parent feedback meeting that will be scheduled for one hour at a mutually convenient time, either in-person or via telehealth (phone or secure video). Dr. Weatherly will consult with the client/parent(s) to review the results of the evaluation; provide a diagnosis or diagnoses if appropriate; answer questions; and provide treatment recommendations for interventions, school or classroom placement, relevant community services, medical follow-up, or other referral suggestions as appropriate.

 

- This may include several specific recommended therapists or programs that can meet your/your child’s needs. Dr. Weatherly also often provides informational handouts regarding your/your child’s diagnosis and/or specific issues and will recommend a schedule for follow-up assessments to monitor your child’s progress and continuing needs over time. Adolescents, and school-aged children, upon request, are welcome to attend part of the feedback session to hear a summary of the results and recommendations and to ask questions. A comprehensive written report is provided at the conclusion of all comprehensive psychological evaluations, and is delivered in hard copy form or via encrypted email/PDF file.
