How Neuropsychological Testing Can Make a Difference
Getting an accurate diagnosis through neuropsychological testing can mean significant improvements for children in both educational and social environments. With the results of a neuropsychological evaluation, children can gain access to the therapy, medication, and behavioral management strategies they need to progress optimally. This type of testing can also be helpful for managing behavior in schools, as education providers can implement helpful interventions once they are aware of the child’s neuropsychological diagnosis. Our pediatric neuropsychologist is qualified to perform autism evaluations, Asperger’s neuropsychological assessments, and a range of other widely recognized testing regimens.
