Child and Adolescent Neuropsychology
Child Neuropsychological Testing
Neuropsych Associates provides evaluations for children of all ages. Our neuropsychologists use up-to-date standard measures to develop a detailed profile of learning strengths and weaknesses.
Our goal is to understand how your child learns best and to gain insight into how he processes information and handles tasks compared to other children of the same age.
We carefully review your child’s skills and abilities in many domains, including intellectual functioning and reasoning abilities, learning and memory, visual processing, listening comprehension and verbal expression, and executive skills like planning, organizing, and managing time and materials, attention, and concentration. These are the skills and abilities that are at the core of academic achievement.
We administer reading, math and writing tests to see what school skills your child has mastered. We carefully observe how he approaches each task and we look at his patterns of performance to see if a learning disability affects his ability to demonstrate what he knows. We don’t give every child the same tests, but rather use our assessment tools to develop a profile of each child’s individual learning strengths and weaknesses.
During our evaluation process, we also consider how your child is doing emotionally and how he is interacting with family members, friends, and classmates.
After the evaluation and feedback are complete, we stay in touch with families to help them implement our recommendations. For children with learning disabilities, we can offer ongoing support. We also work closely with a dedicated group of learning specialists, anxiety specialists, behavioral therapists, and child and adolescent psychiatrists who are on-site and available to provide additional services and treatment as needed.
