Testing consists of a variety of activities:

  • Answering questions
  • Completing hands-on tasks
  • Writing
  • Drawing
  • Completing puzzles

 

Testing usually lasts between 2 to 5 hours depending on what diagnoses you are being tested for.

 

You are always welcome to take as many breaks as you need throughout the testing session to use the bathroom or grab a snack or some water.

 

For testing sessions lasting longer than two hours, a scheduled break will be planned half-way through the testing. On some occasions, testing will be broken up over two separate sessions in order to accommodate schedules.
