Finding the right assessment

Our assessments include a holistic evaluation of emotional, behavioral, social, adaptive, and cognitive functioning. Testing typically includes academic testing in order to identify educational learning styles and/or disorders. There are two types of assessment packages offered. Selecting a plan is determined by age and reason for the evaluation. 

What is a Neuropsychological evaluation?

Areas evaluated include the following:

  • General cognitive functioning

  • Academic skills

  • Attention & concentration

  • Executive functions (e.g., planning, organization, problem-solving)

  • Language skills

  • Visual and verbal memory
