Pediatric Neuropsychology Evaluations

Parents often have concerns about their children’s performance at school or their behavior. Maybe your child’s teacher has expressed some concerns, or your physician has recommended a neuropsychological assessment. Maybe someone is recommending medications and you are wondering if this is the correct direction to go. Because we specialize in complex cases where there have been multiple conflicting diagnoses, or when misdiagnosis is suspected, we are uniquely able to provide guidance and answer questions such as:

  • Is my child’s diagnosis correct?
  • How do I know if my child has ADHD?
  • Does my child suffer from Bipolar Disorder?
  • What is Autism?
  • Why is my child really having trouble in school?
  • Did that head injury hurt my child’s brain?
  • Why does my child always behave like this?

Parents have many different questions, but all parents want to know: What can I do to help my child? We can help.

Getting early help for your child is essential. Having difficulty with attention or schoolwork can hurt children’s confidence and can impact their academic and professional future. Our testing and recommendations are designed to help you and your child understand and overcome adjustment and learning difficulties. Because a child’s brain changes quickly, the sooner we can understand how their brain is working the better their chances are of overcoming difficulties.

We are well acquainted with writing evaluations to be used in IEP (Individual Education Plan) meetings at a child’s school. These evaluations identify the accommodations your child needs from the school in order to succeed. School districts generally conduct less thorough “Psychoeducational Assessments,” which often ignore the important connection between your child’s brain and their school performance. We excel in this area.
