You will then participate in a number of measures and tests conducted by the psychologist lasting approximately 2 to 4 hours. After completion of the tests, the psychologist will analyze the results and produce a report, this takes at least 3 weeks. Once the report is completed, the psychologist will review the report with you at a follow-up session which will last 45-50 minutes.
