Why Would My Child Need a Neuropsychological Assessment?

Common reasons include:

  • Anxiety
  • Attention issues or difficulty concentrating
  • Behavioral concerns, including difficulty interacting with peers and adults
  • Developmental concerns – speech/motor/social delays
  • Gifted/academic achievement assessments
  • Learning disabilities/accommodations testing
  • Physical health changes – brain injury, illness, etc.
  • School admittance testing (WISC-IV, WAIS-IV)

 

Evaluations include a parent and clinician feedback session to review your child’s test findings. We identify your child’s strengths and make recommendations to ensure that he or she receives appropriate support, accommodations and treatment.

Test results and our recommendations are captured in a formal report designed to be used by physicians and academic professionals. This report is typically sent to you 4 – 6 weeks after the evaluation and is sent to others at your request.

Our evaluations can identify and diagnose a variety of conditions including:

  • Anxiety
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Neuro-developmental disorders
  • Depression
  • Dyslexia
  • Gifted and talented
  • Learning disabilities
  • Social communication disorders
  • Nonverbal learning disorder
  • Post-concussive syndrome
  • Mood regulation
  • Reduced rate of processing/production
  • Academic – extended time for college entrance exams

We also provide second opinions for evaluations made outside our practice.
