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 differences you are noticing; 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 social, emotional, and behavioral factors of influence, 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 interventions and 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, while making research-informed and individualized recommendations based on your/your child's specific 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 and promoting success!
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.
Good Faith Estimate
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychology services. You can ask your health care provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
