When should a child be evaluated by a neuropsychologist?

Family physicians, neurologists, school psychologists, teachers, and others refer children to a pediatric neuropsychologist for varied reasons:
  • Attention difficulties (ADD/ADHD)
  • Learning differences or disabilities
  • Socialization problems (autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, nonverbal learning disabilities)
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Psychological conditions (anxiety, depression, mood swings)
  • To measure the effects of an accident, disease, or genetic disorder
  • Other issues affecting a child’s ability to learn and advance in school, such as auditory or visual
       processing difficulties
  • To establish a baseline for tracking developmental and educational progress
  • To determine giftedness, special talents, and individual strengths and weaknesses
