We are happy to offer psychological testing for adults, as well as adolescents. Broken into three appointments, the psychological assessment process allows for diagnostic clarity and individualized recommendations. This allows for parents, teachers, and therapists to provide interventions and accommodations needed to assist each individual in reaching their potential and maximizing treatment. Areas commonly evaluated include Attention Deficit Challenges, Autism Spectrum Diagnosis, Gender Identity Concerns, personality, and clinical issues, and specific diagnostic information for more comprehensive treatment planning.
Forensic assessment is a category of psychological assessment that is used to aid a legal fact finder and is one of the most common applications of psychology to the law. It is prevalent in a variety of legal settings. Common evaluation questions include things like risk evaluation, sex offender evaluation, competency and general recommendations for treatment. Dr. Palmisano also conducts risk evaluations for pornography usage and commonly works with attorneys to help address parenting questions and fitness for parenting evaluation. She is a member of the CT Association for the Treatment of Sexual Offenders.
