Iis Early Neuropsychological Testing Essential?
In many instances, an accurate diagnosis can make a significant difference in the lives of children, providing them with access to proper therapy, medication, and behavioral management strategies. Furthermore, awareness of the assessment results could prove beneficial in managing a child’s behavior at school. It allows educators to implement effective interventions to promote optimal academic and social progress. We provide a comprehensive assessment of the child’s neuropsychological health and behavior, which includes diagnosis of Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and other widely recognized testing regimens.
