Granted by the Japanese government, TELL operates under NPO status which allows our clinicians to work in accordance with the region of the license they hold.

Since we began offering this service in 2007, TELL Counseling has provided assessments for students of local and international schools in Japan, Japanese returnees, as well as children from bi-cultural families.
Psychological assessment service at TELL Counseling is conducted in a series of different methods/procedures, such as interviews with family members and educators, observations, standardized tests, and checklists. This service is administered by our experienced clinical psychologists and clinical neuropsychologists and individually designed to meet the needs of each child.
Based on the result of the evaluation, our psychologists also offer appropriate recommendations and support to the child’s family and educators. This service is offered only in our Tokyo office.
