ABLE Clinic

The ABLE Clinic services the state of Arizona by providing individuals with comprehensive evaluations and testing to assist in diagnosis, treatment recommendations, and coordination of care.

Previous to October of 2020, the ABLE Clinic was known as the Disability Assessment Research Clinic (DARC), which had been in operation since 1994. In that time, the clinic has conducted more than 4,000 comprehensive, integrated psycho/social, neuropsychological, medical and vocational assessments directly related to assisting numerous public, private, state and federal programs in their work with individuals with medical, physical, mental, psychological, neuropsychological and psychiatric disabilities. We are happy to announce the continuation of such services, in addition to expanding diagnostic services to both the pediatric and adult population of southern Arizona.

Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance. After paying your evaluation fee, we can provide billing paperwork that you can submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. We cannot guarantee that an insurance company will reimburse evaluation fees.

The entire process can take up to 2-3 weeks. To provide the most comprehensive evaluation possible, the psychologist often spends up to 10-15 hours with one client.

We offer evaluations to anyone from the age of 6 to the age of 69.

We do not offer on-going therapy. However, after the evaluation, we can offer recommendations to help going forward. These can include recommendations for schools and workplaces, local resources, types of therapies, and other suggestions for the individual to work on independently.

We schedule two appointments for an evaluation: The first is an interview often held over Zoom. We plan approximately 2 hours for this meeting. The second appointment is in-person testing in our clinic. This time can vary depending on the client's needs, but it can often last 3-4 hours. After testing is complete, the psychologist prepares a formal evaluation report. An additional virtual post-consult meeting will be scheduled for approximately one hour where your psychologist discusses the results of the evaluation.

The cost for our services will vary depending on your specific situation and the type of testing required. Please contact us directly to get an estimate of costs. Our friendly staff is happy to work with you to explain all your options. Special pricing may be available for those who qualify, so please let us know if you are are active duty military/veteran, a University of Arizona employee/dependent or other circumstances.
