What are Pediatric Neuropsychological Evaluations?
A pediatric neuropsychological evaluation assesses a child’s cognitive profile using an array of comprehensive and objectively validated measures. This profile is used to create a personalized treatment plan which optimizes the child’s development at home, school or other setting. Each evaluation consists of: testing, interpretation, plan development, feedback, and a complete written report. These evaluations are tailored to the developmental level of the child and are appropriate for children and young adults ages 2 to 30 years old.
