The goal of a neuropsychological evaluation is to improve a family’s understanding of a child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses in order to identify targeted and effective interventions. The evaluation consists of a comprehensive intake interview, followed by 4 to 6 hours of testing, culminating in an explanatory feedback session that presents the results in one coherent picture. A number of areas of functioning are assessed including:

  • Intellectual/Cognitive abilities
  • Academic (achievement) skills
  • Executive Functioning (e.g., attention, organizational skills)
  • Learning and memory skills
  • Language skills screening
  • Visual-motor and visual spatial skills screening
  • Emotional/personality functioning
  • Social/Adaptive functioning

A neuropsychological assessment can be instrumental in understanding a child's learning style and approach processing information in the world around them.
