Neuropsychological Testing

Neuropsychology is a specialty that assesses how brain functions impact learning, behavior, and other skills.  Neuropsychological evaluations take a comprehensive look at your child's cognitive abilities, including reasoning, memory, attention, executive functions, and language, among others.  Additionally, the evaluation includes assessment of social, emotional, and medical factors that may influence your child's daily life.  The goal of a neuropsychological evaluation is to better understand your child's unique set of strengths and challenges, in order to develop individualized treatment and/or educational plans that promote your child's success and healthy development.  Neuropsychological testing if often combined with other psycho-educational testing to get a comprehensive understanding and intervention plan for your child.
