Career Assessment and Exploration
In addition to the regular neuropsychological battery, for middle and high school students, Dr. Lurie offers a supplementary educational and career assessment. This allows Dr. Lurie to provide specific guidance regarding a match between the student’s personality type, programs of study, and careers. There is an additional charge for this career assessment and exploration tool, and the testing periods will be lengthened slightly to accommodate the additional time needed to administer this assessment.
The benefit of this additional testing will allow Dr. Lurie to integrate a student’s psychological functioning, personality profile, neurocognitive functioning, interests, and occupational visions. Once this information is obtained, Dr. Lurie will provide information regarding the occupations that best fit the student, along with guidance regarding online tools for additional career planning. With this information, the student can explore the educational requirements of a career, the various colleges that offer training for this career path, salary potentials for a career path, and even current available jobs in various areas of the country.
Dr. Lurie also provides this career testing independently of a full neuropsychological assessment. This would be a one-hour assessment, and more information in this regard can be obtained by contacting the office.
