Assessment is a relational activity; its purpose is to identify a person’s strengths and needs and to determine an appropriate course of action to support healthy development across the lifespan. There are many forms of assessment (e.g., housing, educational, employment, or psychological). Various tools, tests, and instruments are used in the process. The tools chosen are based on the purpose of the assessment and what type of information is being gathered (DeCandia, 2015). I help organizations develop comprehensive assessments for homeless families, and clinically
I conduct psychological testing of children.
