The Neuropsychology Service is a group of four licensed psychologists with long experience and expertise in evaluating learning, attention and behavior difficulties in children, adolescents and adults. The underlying premise of neuropsychology is that brain function affects learning, attention and behavior but we also consider the interaction of brain function with life experience.
Evaluations at the Neuropsychology Service typically include:
- A comprehensive past history
- Rating scales that help to identify strengths and weaknesses in the present
- Testing that assesses general intelligence, language, visual problem-solving, attention, memory, social/emotional skills and academic achievement.
Our findings are summarized in comprehensive reports and we are committed to getting our findings to parents, schools and mental health professionals within two weeks after the final testing appointment. Typically, our reports contain recommendations for school accommodations and services, mental health (counseling) services and medical intervention.
