HOW CAN AN EVALUATION HELP?
A neuropsychological evaluation can help to answer the "Why" and "How"
questions that are on your mind.
Thoughtful and targeted assessment can help to uncover what's driving the difficulties you (or your child) are experiencing, a critical step in determining which supports are best suited. A comprehensive evaluation often involves assessment of:
- Problem Solving Skills
- Processing Speed
- Attention & Executive Functioning
- Academic Skills
- Language Abilities
- Social, Emotional, & Behavioral Wellbeing
In addition to identifying broader factors like interfering social, emotional, or behavioral concerns, a neuropsychological evaluation can aid in specifying the presence of:
- Learning Disabilities (like dyslexia)
- Language Disorders
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Other Neurodevelopmental & Psychiatric Conditions
Once you can name it, you can face it ...with the right tools & knowledge!
There are a lot of treatment options out there, some of which are based on solid scientific evidence, and some that are not! I am here to support you in becoming well-educated consumers, by recommending interventions that have strong research support in enhancing success based on your or your child's particular profile.
One important goal as we progress through life is to learn how to play to our strengths, while compensating for areas of relative challenge. We all have personal areas of strength. Identifying areas of strength and resiliency are crucial steps in the evaluation process, which can not only help to offset areas of risk, but also aid in enhancing self-esteem.
Evaluation rates vary based on the individual needs of each client. During the (free) initial fifteen minute phone intake, I'll gather information and then provide an estimate of the total cost.
I do not take insurance; however, if you decide you'd like to independently explore your out-of-network insurance benefits and you find that portions (or all) of the evaluation may be covered, I am happy to provide documentation upon request to support your insurance submission.
