The professionals at Family Therapy & Development Centers have extensive experience in providing Neuropsychological Assessments for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults for a variety of difficulties involving the brain and behavior.
We provide follow-up consultations with the patient and their families in order to help develop a plan to help with their challenges. We also engage in follow-up consultation with schools, therapists, and physicians to help plan and implement educational and other interventional services for those who need such support.
Clinical Neuropsychologists conduct evaluations that focus on the relationship between brain and behavior. The evaluations assess brain functioning and behavior with detailed objective testing of various functions. This helps with diagnosis and in developing detailed plans for treatment and management.
Evaluations differ from patient to patient, depending on the reason for the evaluation, the age, and presenting problems of the individual. They can cover such areas as:
Some abilities are measured in greater detail than others, depending on the person’s needs. And additional information is obtained from the family. With parental approval and consent, information may also be obtained from the school, therapists, or physicians.
Emerging skills can be assessed in very young children. However, the evaluations of infants and preschool children tend to be of shorter duration, because the child has not yet developed many skills.
