Abstract

The previous chapter has given examples illustrating the types of children seen by pediatricians and other primary health care providers who may benefit from psychological testing. Children with developmental delays, children with various learning problems in the school environment, children who do not achieve academically to the degree expected by themselves or their parents, and children who have a variety of behavioral and emotional problems may all be referred for psychological testing by primary care physicians or other health and educational providers. This chapter will discuss the referral process for psychological testing and amplify further on the coordination and professional interaction between the physician and the psychologist.
