Introducing Clinic-based Psych Assessments!

Introducing Clinic-based Psych Assessments!

Project Play is so excited about our new service!

Dr. Lyn McRainey and Vanessa Adams have joined Project Play Therapy’s clinic team to provide comprehensive psychoeducational and psychological assessments for children, adolescents, and young adults.


About Psych Assessments:

All assessment plans are individualized to the client/child; however, a comprehensive evaluation typically includes assessment in the areas of general development, cognitive ability (intelligence/IQ), academic skills, adaptive (self-care) skills, and social-emotional functioning. Many other areas may be assessed based on the age of the individual and the reasons for the evaluation. This formal evaluation process is used to develop a detailed picture of a learner’s personal strengths and challenges. The results will measure achievement and identify any specific disability in need of accommodation (developmental delays, a learning disability, ADHD, giftedness, etc.). All of the information gathered is considered together to make expert recommendations for educational planning, home-learning supports, and collaborative interventions.


Most often, parents request evaluation in order to answer a specific question or because there is a concern. However, an evaluation is useful and insightful for the family of any learner working to maximize potential!


Initially, these assessment services will be provided at our Nashville location.
