Welcome to the online office of Dr. Joshua Shifrin, a licensed psychologist serving 30+ states in the United States through telehealth. If you are searching for comprehensive learning disability evaluations in Easton, CT, you have come to the right place. Dr. Shifrin is a Diplomate of the American Board of School Neuropsychology, and a nationally certified school psychologist who specializes in pediatric/school neuropsychological evaluations for children ages 5-25.
Comprehensive Learning Disability Evaluations
If you suspect that your child may have a learning disability, it is essential to seek professional help. Dr. Shifrin understands that every child is unique, and every learning disorder requires a different approach. That’s why he conducts comprehensive evaluations to determine your child’s strengths, weaknesses, and potential learning difficulties.
Our learning disability evaluations in Easton, CT, follow a standardized testing protocol and go beyond the typical school testing to assess the child’s cognitive, emotional, neurologic, and academic functioning. The evaluation process typically involves an initial interview with the parents to gather relevant information about the child’s developmental history, medical history, academic performance, and any previous evaluations or treatments. Subsequently, he conducts a series of tests to evaluate the child’s abilities in language, memory, attention, executive functioning, and more. The process is non-invasive, and Dr. Shifrin aims to make the experience as comfortable as possible for the child.
Early Neuropsychological Testing Benefits
If your child has a learning disability, it is essential to address it as soon as possible. Early intervention can make a significant difference in the child’s academic and social outcomes. A knowledgeable diagnosis from a pediatric neuropsychologist can ensure that your child receives the therapy, medication, and behavioral management strategies they need for optimal progress. Our pediatric neuropsychologist can perform autism evaluation, Asperger’s neuropsychological assessment, and a range of other widely recognized testing regimens.
Awareness of the child’s assessment is also particularly helpful when managing behavior at school. There are numerous helpful interventions education providers can put in place once they are aware of a neuropsychological diagnosis.
