The purpose is determined by the referring doctor and the client, and can include the clarification of cognitive functions, resources and vulnerable areas, personality description, mental strengths and weaknesses or mental illness. The purpose of a psychological assessment can be to clarify:
Current and future plans regarding education and work.
Qualifications as adoptive parents.
The problematic and difficult behavior of children.
Suspicions of ADHD, Autism, Asperger, NLD, etc.
If a child or adolescent is especially gifted.
