Dr. Rebecca Resnik, the founder of Rebecca Resnik and Associates, is a former special education teacher. She applies this unique experience, as well as her personal experience as a mom when working with her clients. Rebecca Resnik and Associates has 14 clinicians on staff and offers psychological testing, psychotherapy & educational consulting in Maryland.
During our conversation, we discuss what psychological testing is - what does it mean to get a child tested. Rebecca provides an overview of autism testing, psychoeducational testing, neuropsychological testing, and IQ testing - what they are and what they are useful for. She makes it very clear a diagnosis is NOT a label; rather diagnoses are a critical step in ensuring your child receives the services and benefits they need and deserve.
Rebecca explains the differences between getting testing in a hospital, like Kennedy Krieger or Yale, as opposed to the psychological assessments done by school psychologists or private offices, like hers. Generally, school psychologists will not provide a "diagnosis". Instead, their tests result in an "eligibility code". These are important. However, if you are applying for State and/or Federal benefits you will want to get at least (1) private test completed.
Rebecca recommends talking to professionals, like education attorneys or special education advocates, when looking for a private testing facility. You want to ask someone who reviews a LOT of test reports because they will have a fair idea of the quality of the psychologist producing them.
