Neuropsychological Assessment & Testing
Neuropsychological testing is a tool that can help our staff identify many conditions, such as learning disorders as well as psychological and behavioral issues. We conduct assessments only when we know it will be useful, actionable, and cost-effective to the treatment outcome.
Your family will meet with our neuropsychological tester to determine the approximate number of testing sessions necessary for us to conduct a thorough evaluation. Spending an hour with your family to get a detailed history to find out what questions you seek answers to and to review any previous testing, allows us to determine the testing measures necessary for the assessment, saving you time and money.
There are two portions to each assessment: cognitive and psychological. Our initial evaluation will help us determine whether we need to pursue cognitive results, psychological results, or utilize a combination of both. Each case is different and requires a testing battery custom tailored to your individual child.
The cognitive portion of the assessment enables our team to examine your child's attention, IQ, memory logic and reasoning, and processing speed to determine whether they are a better auditory or visual learner, and to identify any potential learning or executive functioning disorders.
The psychological testing portion of the evaluation allows us to gain insight into your child's behavior, personality, and capabilities. The results allow us to have the clarity to be able to determine what are and are not the primary psychological issues that your child is exhibiting.
