Never Let School Interfere With Your Child's Education
What is a Neuropsychological Evaluation?
Neuropsychological evaluations determine your child's strengths and weaknesses in a number of areas including: intelligence, academic skills, executive functions (such as planning, organization, task management), attention, memory, language, perception, sensorimotor functions, motivation, mood state, emotions, quality of life, and personality.
The areas addressed in child's evaluation are determined by the referral question (what the referring doctor, teacher and/or parent wants to know), the child's complaints and symptoms, and any observations made during interview and test administration.
The purpose of attaining an evaluation is to aid in the detection of learning and behavioral difficulties that may impair your child's success.
Neuropsychological evaluations can be useful in determining:
- Specific Learning Disorders (Reading, Writing, Math) also known as Learning Disabilities
- Language Delays
- Executive Functioning and Complex Attention Deficits
- Processing Speed Deficits
- Memory Impairments
- Intellectual Disability
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder
- Gifted Testing and Evaluations
- Behavioral Challenges
- Oppositional Behavior
- Anxiety (Situational, Specific, Social, Generalized)
- Accommodations For Standardized Tests (ACT, SAT, GRE, etc.)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) / Baseline Concussion Testing
- Differential Diagnosis
- Pre and Post Functioning After Neurosurgical Procedures
Feedback Following Testing
Additionally, as part of the evaluation Dr. Lisle works with parents, teachers, therapists, and doctors to create a collaborative treatment team. Following the evaluation, comprehensive feedback will be offered to review the results, provide recommendations for your child's treatment plan and offer referrals for further treatment.
