Evaluation Agencies

As of 10/8/2020


The Queens College Psychological Center (QCPC) is offering psychoeducational evaluations for students.  (QCPC) is a community mental health service, as well as a training and research center operated by the PhD Program in Clinical Psychology at Queens College and the Department of Psychology, Queens College City University of New York.

Students needing assessment to determine eligibility for special services will receive standardized tests of intellectual function, academic achievement, and select cognitive areas via tele-assessment using HIPAA-compliant zoom platforms. 

Individual psychoeducational assessments are $350. or $300. for students on financial aid.  For students with demonstrated financial need, fees will be set on a sliding scale. 

If interested, please contact QCPC.  Interested individual's names will go on a wait list and will be contacted when an opening becomes available.

Below is an update of available Psycho-Educational Evaluation services in New York City.  
66% of the Psycho-Educational Evaluation service providers normally listed are not accepting new patients.
Almost all centers affiliated with college Psychology programs like City College and Yeshiva (normally the go-tos for CUNY students) are closed with the exception of a few who are still offering telehealth therapy.
Currently, Dr. Hafeez’ practice, Comprehensive Consultation, and Long Island University, CW Post are the two most enticing options for CUNY students seeking low cost Psycho-Educational Evaluations.
Dr Hafeez is offering her CUNY student discount rate of 900$ and performing health conscious evaluations with 50-65% of her normal staffing occupancy, regular patient and employee checks, and portions of the assessment (intake and informing conferences) done remotely.
CW post is offering fully remote evaluations, and sliding scale rates with a maximum cost of $650.
Listed below in order of price are all practices that are accepting new patients. I’ve also included the three colleges who are providing telehealth therapy services.

COSDI (CUNY Council on Student Disability Issues) - Psychoeducational Evaluation Site List
Please note that Queens College now charges $300 for Psycho-Educational evaluations.

Limited Time Reduced Rate for Psychologogical and/or Neuropsychological Assessments

Doctoral level students and experienced examiners from NIP will provide intake, testing and report writing services to answer various referral questions that will typically include specific learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, adaptive and socio-emotional deficits.

These assessments will help establish accurate diagnoses, design intervention steps and treatment options, educate the involved parties on the nature of the presenting problems and advocate for special accommodations if qualified.

For families with limited budgets, NIP will offer sliding scale payments that can help make the evaluation more affordable.

Our regular sliding scale is from $900.00 to $2500.00 based on income and expenses.

In order to provide Assessment cases for our psychology externs, we are offering a reduced rate of $500.00 until the end of May, 2020 to those who cannot pay their assessed fee of $900.00.
