The Psychoeducational Assessment Service for Students (PASS) is a service located at the William James College's Brenner Center. PASS provides expert educational and psychological assessment of children, adolescents and college students for the purpose of diagnosing learning problems and recommending interventions and accommodations.
PASS can provide psychological/neurodevelopmental evaluations resulting in jargon-free written reports that are used by parents, educators, public and private schools, colleges, and others in caregiving or professional roles. The evaluations are completed by doctoral level school psychology students under the supervision of a licensed psychologist with a nationally recognized expertise in school psychology and assessment. Evaluations can include cognitive assessment, academic assessment, social-emotional screening and relevant neuropsychological measures to identify learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, or social-emotional factors that may require intervention or accommodations in the school setting.
Assessment to document the need for disability accommodations. PASS can provide documentation for disability accommodations. High school and college students with disabilities or suspected disabilities may require accommodations (e.g., extra time or special conditions for test-taking, note-taking in classes) to demonstrate their actual capabilities on standardized tests or to take full advantage of college or other post-secondary learning opportunities.
These evaluations are offered at rates that are well below those typically charged for such services: in the $1000-$1500 range for a comprehensive evaluation, and $600-800 for a single test (e.g., WISC-V, WAIS-IV). Please note that health insurance does not cover psychoeducational testing or assessments. We require that clients pay us in full directly. The fee covers all charges up to delivery of a final report and includes a face-to-face feedback meeting with the clients to summarize findings and respond to any questions. Testing takes place at William James College, One Wells Avenue in Newton, MA.
