How does a neuropsychological evaluation differ from a school evaluation?

Assessments conducted within your child’s school typically focus on the current level of achievement and the skills needed for your child to perform academically. These assessments are used to determine if a child qualifies for special programs or therapies offered by the school.

In contrast, a neuropsychologist has specialized training and a unique capacity to assess all the factors important to a child’s school and social success. A neuropsychological evaluation will give you an in depth understanding of your child’s neuro-cognitive, social, emotional, and academic functioning. This comprehensive profile is used to design a treatment plan and interventions appropriate to your child’s strengths, weaknesses and unique personality.

* Neuropsychological evaluations often result in substantial changes in treatment plans
  and parenting strategies.
