If everything is going well and a child doesn’t experience any difficulty the evaluation is not necessary. However, children may appear to be doing okay at home and in school, but may be struggling to keep up. You may not know how to express what is going on or who to turn to to explain their difficulty.
Often, children in these situations may display other issues such as behavioral problems or emotional difficulties when in fact their issues come from a neuropsychological background. Because of this, it is important for teachers and parents to be very sensitive to issues going on with their children after these medical issues and seek appropriate evaluations if they have any concerns.
