Autism Evaluation in Brunswick, NY
Our pediatric neuropsychologist is qualified to conduct autism evaluations, providing a thorough assessment of social communication, behavior, and sensory processing to assist with an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment planning. Our evaluation may include the use of standardized assessments, parent and teacher interviews, and observation of the child in natural environments, such as home and school settings.
Throughout the evaluation process, we prioritize collaboration with parents, caregivers, and educators to develop a comprehensive understanding of the child and their unique strengths and challenges. Our goal is to provide families with a clear understanding of the child’s needs and recommendations for appropriate support.
Whether you are concerned about your child’s development or have received a prior diagnosis and need a second opinion, Dr. Shifrin can provide comprehensive autism evaluations tailored to your child’s needs and your family’s concerns.
Neuropsychological Assessment in Brunswick, NY
As a nationally certified school psychologist, Dr. Shifrin specializes in neuropsychological assessments to evaluate cognitive, academic, and social-emotional functioning. Our assessments include a thorough review of medical and educational history, cognitive and academic testing, and behavioral observation to provide a comprehensive picture of the child’s overall functioning and identify potential areas of intervention.
We understand that every child is unique, and we tailor our assessments to meet the specific needs of each individual. Our goal is to help families and educators understand the child’s unique learning profile, identify areas of strength and challenge, and develop a customized plan to support the child’s academic and social-emotional growth.
Our neuropsychological assessments can be especially helpful in identifying learning disabilities, ADHD, and other executive functioning difficulties that may impact academic performance and social functioning.
The Benefits of Neuropsychological Evaluations
Early identification and intervention are essential for positive outcomes in children with neurodevelopmental and learning differences. A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation can provide families and educators with valuable insight into the child’s strengths and challenges, leading to improved academic and social-emotional outcomes.
Once a child receives a neuropsychological diagnosis, educators can create a specialized plan to meet the child’s unique learning needs, such as individualized education programs (IEPs) or 504 plans. These plans provide specific recommendations and accommodations to support the child’s academic success and social-emotional growth.
Neuropsychological evaluations can also identify underlying behavioral and emotional difficulties that may be impacting the child’s academic and social functioning. With a better understanding of the child’s underlying challenges, educators and parents can create a targeted behavioral management plan to support the child’s success.
With early identification, appropriate intervention, and ongoing support, children with neurodevelopmental and learning differences can go on to achieve academic and social success. At our practice, we aim to provide families and educators with the tools and understanding they need to help their child reach their full potential.
