Translating Research into Psychological Practice
Keating and Associates
Dr. Keating and Associates offer a comprehensive range of assessment services for individuals and families in the Tampa Bay area. Assessments may be conducted to clarify a diagnosis, determine a current level of functioning, to obtain a second opinion, or to provide specific information to a third party (e.g. school staff, law enforcement, or college disability support services).
Our purpose in conducting assessments is to determine individual, familial, or organizational strengths and to identify challenges that may serve as barriers to a person, family, or organization’s goals. Recommendations help to clarify supports and services that will assist overcoming identified challenges.
Some common types of assessment concerns include:
Most individuals participate in a comprehensive evaluation that includes discussing the referral concern in detail and being assessed using instruments specific to that particular concern. The information gathered will be consolidated into a written report including as assessment of strengths and a tailored set of evidence-based recommendations.
Individuals and families are invited to a face-to-face feedback session with the clinician to discuss findings and recommendations for the future.
