WHAT IS AN ASSESSMENT LIKE?

A neuropsychological evaluation involves examining thinking, behavior, and social-emotional functioning. The evaluation uses standardized tests and procedures. Examiners work directly with your child. She also talks to you and your doctor. Tests may be performed using paper and pencil or on the computer. Your child will be asked many questions and to solve different types of problems.. Neuropsychological evaluations typically include tests that measure the following:

  • Intelligence (IQ)

  • Problem solving

  • Planning and organization

  • Attention and memory

  • Processing speed

  • Language

  • Academic skills

  • Visual perception

  • Control over hand movements

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Aggression and impulsive behavior

  • Social skills

Our psychologist will also review your child’s medical and school records to help understand how the test results relate to daily life.
