Assessments at the Neurodevelopmental Center:
A neurodevelopmental assessment is a neuropsychological assessment by a team of pediatricians, nurse practitioners, neuropsychologists and clinical psychologists.
Neuropsychological testing delineates a child's unique pattern of cognitive strengths and weaknesses to determine its impact on learning, behavior and well-being. Once the child's pattern is known, treatment or remediation plans are developed to address the areas of weakness. This assessment is done by clinical neuropsychologists.
What happens on the day of your appointment?
You should plan on spending a school-day length of time in the clinic. We will take a number of breaks, sometimes including one for lunch, so plan accordingly. We also speak with the parents during the day to catch up on new information, to be sure we understand your questions, and review any questions we may have. We recommend that parents bring a book or some work to do while they wait.What happens after your child's assessment?
After the neurodevelopmental assessment, there is usually a conference for parents to review the testing results. After the neuropsychological assessment, a diagnostic feedback session will be scheduled to have the testing information interpreted and to review the recommendations.
