Early identification through neuropsychological testing can make a significant difference in a child’s life. An accurate diagnosis can lead to an improved outcome for children, both in their education and social environments. With the results of a neuropsychological evaluation, children can receive access to effective therapy, medication, and behavioral management strategies to support optimal progress. Awareness of the child’s assessment can also be particularly helpful in addressing successful behavior management at school. Once informed of the neuropsychological diagnosis, education providers can put in place several useful interventions. Our expert pediatric neuropsychologist is qualified to conduct autism evaluation, Asperger’s neuropsychological assessment, and a range of other widely recognized testing regimens.
1. Neuropsychological Evaluations in Newtown, CT
Our neuropsychological evaluations follow a comprehensive approach to assess the child’s cognitive functioning, behavior, social skills, personality, and emotional state. This evaluation will provide a detailed report of the child’s strengths and limitations, diagnosing any underlying conditions that require clinical intervention.
We perform neuropsychological evaluations for children aged five to 25 years old. Our evaluations are typically conducted in the office setting, in person, or via telehealth.
Our goal is to provide a thorough assessment that is focused on the individual needs of each child. The evaluation is tailored to ensure that it is suited to the child’s particular requirements, and it provides the guidance required to develop an effective treatment plan.
