A brief explanation of the testing process
We understand that the application process for admission to the Nueva School lower and middle school can be overwhelming.
That's why we want to make the early childhood assessment (for intellectual functioning) as easy and stress-free as possible. The offices, of Ginny Estupinian Ph.D. ABPP, have been successfully providing parents with the necessary assessments for the last decade.
Here are some reasons why you should choose our offices for your child's assessment:
Experience: Our offices have an established level of experience administering, scoring, and writing these types of reports. You can trust that your child will receive a high-quality testing experience.
Convenience: The assessment will take place in our conveniently located Los Gatos office. Your child will work one-on-one with Dr. Estupinian or one of her staff members in a comfortable environment. We will make sure to provide your child with the breaks they may need.
Standardization: The assessment we administer is standardized, meaning our office will follow the same instructions when conducting the evaluation for all children. This ensures that the results are fair and accurate.
It's important to note that although we administer this assessment, our office doesn't have any information regarding the Nueva School admission criteria or how they will use the report provided.
Our involvement is strictly focused on providing a high-quality testing experience and prompt feedback to the school and the parents.
We hope that you choose our offices for your child's assessment. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
Dr. Estupinian graduated from Pacific Graduate School of Psychology at Palo Alto University with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. She completed specialized clinical training as a postdoctoral fellow at Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System.
For a decade, Dr. Estupinian worked as a psychologist and neuropsychological assessor with medical privileges at Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital systems.
In this capacity she performed hundreds of neuropsychological and psychological evaluations for the various outpatient clinics as part of a multi-interdisciplinary medical team.
Today, Dr. Estupinian is board certified in clinical psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) and works exclusively in her private practice where she provides therapy along with neuropsychological and psychological assessments.
Her vast experience and clinical knowledge will make your child's assessment comfortable and accurate.
It is very important that you book your child's assessment as soon as possible in order to meet the Nueva School deadline.
This time of year, the availability of times and dates are limited due to the various seasonal holidays.
Please note that we need time not only to do the assessment, but also to score and produce the final report.
Over the last few years of conducting these assessments, we have seen parents begin to investigate the assessment process and not book, only later to discover all available appointments for the year have been taken.
Therefore, we recommend you click now on the button on this page and reserve your spot today. We look forward to working with your child in this process.

The assessment cost $795 and includes up to a 2 hour testing appointment. Our office will send the report directly to Harker School after you provide permission.
Most children take between 60-90 minutes to complete the evaluation. We offer a 2-hour appointment time so we can take breaks as needed.
There is nothing you can do, or should do, to "coach" or prepare your child for the assessment. The purpose of the examination is to assess each child's abilities without preparation. We encourage you not to put any pressure on your child about his or her test performance prior to the appointment. Your child should not prepare or study for the evaluation. Please be aware that prior exposure to test materials, preparation exercises and questions will invalidate the results.
If your child is sick on the day of the appointment or has been sick 14 days prior to the appointment, please call our office to reschedule. We will do everything possible to find another opening for your child, as soon as our schedule permits.
We prefer to have only one parent can come with the child. We will meet together with your child at the beginning of the appointment to make sure your child feels comfortable working with me. During the testing process you will be able to wait in our lobby. We encourage a quite environment so that your child can do their best. If you would like to make a telephone call during this time, we request you step outside of the office to make calls.
: You may tell your child that they will be doing some fun and interesting activities during the appointment, and you can encourage them by telling them, "just do your best". Avoid telling your child that it is a play date as this may affect their performance on the assessment. Our office staff will work with your child to keep them engaged and provide breaks as needed.
