Benefits of Early Neuropsychological Testing
An accurate diagnosis can lead to significant improvements in education and social environments for children. The findings of a neuropsychological assessment can help children access therapy, medication, and behavioral management strategies that they need to make optimal progress. Knowledge of a child’s diagnosis is also useful for managing behavior at school, as there are numerous interventions that educators can employ once they are aware of a neuropsychological disorder. Our pediatric neuropsychologist is qualified to perform a wide range of evaluations, including autism evaluation, Asperger’s neuropsychological assessment, and more.
Neuropsychological Assessment in Pleasant Grove, UT
Our pediatric neuropsychologist has extensive experience in conducting comprehensive evaluations to identify learning disabilities and other conditions that may impact brain functioning. Neuropsychological assessments can determine cognitive strengths and weaknesses, pinpoint sources of academic or behavioral difficulties, and guide treatment recommendations. Dr. Shifrin uses a range of standardized tests to measure memory, executive functioning, attention, language, and other cognitive abilities. He utilizes the results to develop practical, evidence-based interventions to help children succeed academically and in their personal lives.
Autism Evaluation in Pleasant Grove, UT
Our pediatric neuropsychologist specializes in evaluating and diagnosing autism in children. Dr. Shifrin follows a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to assess the child’s social communication, including verbal and nonverbal communication, repetitive or restricted behaviors or interests, and sensory processing. The evaluation also includes a medical and developmental history and observations of the child’s behavior. A thorough assessment leads to an accurate diagnosis that can inform appropriate interventions.
Asperger’s Neuropsychological Assessment in Pleasant Grove, UT
In addition to evaluating autism, Dr. Shifrin is qualified to conduct neuropsychological assessments for Asperger’s syndrome. Asperger’s is on the autism spectrum and typically characterized by difficulty with social interactions, repetitive behaviors, and restricted interests or activities. For children with Asperger’s, a neuropsychological assessment can help identify areas of strength and weakness in cognitive functioning and offer guidance and support for educational and social goals.
