Firefly Diagnostics specializes in the comprehensive psychological testing and evaluation for toddlers, children, and adolescents experiencing a variety of developmental, behavioral, and learning differences. This includes challenges associated with developmental delays, intellectual, learning, and other developmental disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorders.
Through a strengths-based, compassionate, and forward-thinking modality, Firefly Diagnostics offers scientifically-grounded, culturally sensitive psychological and psychoeducational evaluation services. Aligning with the latest methods of diagnosis and treatment, Firefly Diagnostics recognizes that each individual presents with his or her own unique differences, which is why it has been integrated into our mission statement to ensure each evaluation, diagnosis, and recommendation is specifically tailored to meet the individualized needs of every client.

At Firefly Diagnostics, we believe a comprehensive psychological evaluation is the foundation
for understanding an individual’s strengths and challenges. If warranted, it leads to the most accurate and reliable diagnosis of mental health concerns. Dr. Tanner Simpson conceptualizes the evaluation process as a collaborative journey and identifies the findings as an essential
“Road Map” to best understand an individual’s functioning level. The conclusions drawn from the comprehensive psychological testing at Firefly Diagnostics will guide future clinical professionals, treatment programs, and educational institutions in their ability to develop treatment planning, and ensure treatment is effective and efficient. While the diagnostic process can be overwhelming for families, Dr. Tanner Simpson strives to make the evaluation process at Firefly Diagnostics a positive experience for everyone involved and will work to meet the specific needs of the individual and the family participating in the evaluation.
