Psychological Testing at the Greater Williamsburg Child Assessment Center (GWCAC)
The Greater Williamsburg Child Assessment Center provides child and adolescent clinical assessments, psychological testing and referrals to community treatment and support providers based on identified needs.
When you call to schedule an assessment, our program specialist will collect a variety of important information about your child. Try to provide as much information as you can during the call to ensure your family is matched to a qualified assessor who can best meet your needs.
Our licensed therapist will assess your child to determine his/her needs. Once complete, we will make suggestions and recommendations for treatment such as outpatient counseling, case management, psychological testing, and other services.
