NOTE: During the pandemic, to minimize traffic in our offices, all testing will be conducted in one day, lasting about 6–6 1⁄2 hours. Evaluation conferences will be conducted over Zoom. Check with your local office for start times and other scheduling details.
Our aptitude testing program consists of two sessions, each about three and a half hours long, and the evaluation conference, which can take one to one and a half hours.
These appointments may be scheduled on consecutive days or spread out over several days or even weeks if you prefer, with no effect on the results. Morning sessions start at 8:30 or 9:00 am and afternoon sessions start at 1:00 or 1:30 pm, depending on the local office.
Other starting times may be arranged as well; please call or email the testing center directly to arrange your appointment times. The evaluation conferences are scheduled throughout the day.
If the person being tested has learning differences, please let us know when scheduling. If you have questions about whether the testing is appropriate, see here. If you need to discuss it further, please call the testing center and we’d be happy to answer any questions.
You should schedule your appointments in advance, especially for holidays and school vacation times. The explanation of the test results is given in the last appointment. You are encouraged to bring someone to this discussion if you wish.
Our testing offices are generally open Monday through Friday. At some offices, Saturday testing is also available. Please check with the center where you plan to be tested. In addition, all offices are open during Christmas and New Year’s weeks and on the following holidays: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Columbus Day, and Veteran’s Day.
Our current fee is $850 in all our offices. As a nonprofit organization, we are firmly committed to keeping prices as low as possible in a world of ever-increasing expenses. You are invited to return for a follow-up discussion within a year of the testing at no additional charge.
We request a $100 deposit to hold appointments. The balance is due upon your arrival for the first appointment. We accept all major credit cards; payment may also be in the form of cash or personal check. We will refund your deposit if we receive a cancellation or appointment change request at least two business days prior to the scheduled date.
Gift certificates are available for any amount. If you are interested in purchasing a gift certificate, please call our accounting department at 617-536-1584, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
