Psychoeducational Assessment: If your
child is having difficulties learning or adjusting
to the educational setting, obtaining an educational neuropsychological evaluation is often the only way to reveal the underlying causes for many problems.
Comprehensive evaluations are important to ensure that nothing important is misssed.
Independent evaluations are important because the psychologist is only working for you (not the school, hospital, or therapist - each of which has their own agenda).
Timely evaluations are critical for getting the serivices students need as soon as possible. Delays in obtaining assessments waste important opportunities for early development.
