Wright Institute Assessment Services

The Wright Institute Assessment Services provides low-fee, comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological testing for children, adolescents, and adults. Under the supervision of licensed clinical psychologists, our students provide psycho-diagnostic and neuropsychological assessments. Our assessments enable you to access critical services requiring a diagnosable condition, and/or to receive the correct services specific to your condition.

Our student clinicians coordinate with caregivers and other providers to facilitate interventions that will improve your level of functioning and quality of life. We also offer a limited number of free assessments to severely underserved people (i.e., homeless, dealing with substance abuse or other mental health problems, participants in a jail diversion program, etc.), helping them to access resources for improved outcomes.
