Several types of evaluations are offered. A full neuropsychological evaluation may not be necessary for everyone, so will be individually and personally tailored to your needs. Please call to discuss. I do not offer therapy.
Traditionally for neurological or medical concerns, such as concussion, traumatic brain injury (TBI), acquired brain injury, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, stroke, brain tumor/infection, ADHD. Includes comprehensive evaluation of cognitive (IQ), attention, executive, memory, language, non-verbal, motor, social, emotional, behavioral & adaptive functioning as well as assessment of academic achievement. Appropriate but not always necessary for academic or educational concerns in children.
Appropriate for academic concerns in previously diagnosed psychological, psychiatric or neurodevelopmental conditions. Includes comprehensive evaluation of cognitive (IQ) & academic achievement functioning. Social, emotional, & behavioral assessment as indicated. The evaluation can identify & diagnose learning disabilities only; the scope does not permit diagnosis of other clinical conditions (eg., ADHD).
Suited for diagnosis and/or identification of strengths/weaknesses in psychological, psychiatric, cognitive or neurodevelopmental conditions. May include ADHD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, school refusal, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism. Includes evaluation of cognitive functioning and social, emotional & behavioral functioning. May include personality assessment. Does not include academic assessment.
Ideal for those who have participated in comprehensive school-based evaluations, but require consideration of clinical diagnoses. Includes record review, interview, and brief standardized screening of domain of concern (attention, executive functions, anxiety/depression) as necessary for diagnosis. Does not include cognitive, academic, or extensive neuropsychological testing. Psychoeducational evaluation within the past year required, with teacher rating scales.
In some cases, you may not be certain what would be most helpful for you or your child. A consultation can help determine an appropriate clinical plan or provide a second opinion.
Includes record review and clinical interviews with patient or parents and children. May result in diagnosis of a clinical condition, scheduling a comprehensive evaluation, or referral for intervention (e.g., psychotherapy, occupational or speech/language therapy).
Includes review of educational records and discussion with parents. May result in recommendations for additional educational services (e.g., 504 Plan, IEP), scheduling a comprehensive evaluation, or referrals.
May include consultation, record review, discussion, formal neuropsychological or psychological evaluation, deposition, fact witness or expert testimony. Please call to discuss.
