High quality psychology professionals in San Francisco, CA with Dr. Lesliegh H. Franklin? Dr. Lesleigh Franklin is an excellent psychologist in Oakland, USA who has been providing supervision, psychotherapy and psychological assessments to children, adolescents and adults for 21 years. Assessments typically involve multiple steps before I can provide you with results. How much time required to complete an assessment varies widely depending upon the clinical questions asked. For example, if you are an adult without a history of significant mental health problems and simply would like an assessment for a learning disability or ADHD, the assessment may only require an initial interview, testing session, and feedback meeting. For child assessments, I routinely involve parents in the evaluation process, observe the child in their school or other natural envirnment, and obtain collateral information from community providers (including teachers) whenever possible.

Why get a psychological assessment? There are various uses for a psychological assessment, which often includs psychological testing (administration of tests and questionnaires). The evaluation may be requested by an authority such as the court or required by an organization in order to answer a question (e.g., competency, custody evaluations) or eligibility for services or special accommodations (e.g., special education, regional center, college exam boards, college accommodations). An assessment may be needed for cognitive rehabilitation purposes (e.g., following a traumatic brain injury or stroke) or prior to medical treatment (e.g., chemotherapy, medication for Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder) to establish a baseline to help providers track the progress of the illness and / or treatment. Perhaps the most common need for psychological assessment is for diagnostic clarification in order to guide treatment or other supports needed to maximize a person’s ability to function at their best in their environment.
