Individuals of all ages seek private neuropsychological evaluations to obtain a thorough understanding of their cognitive, academic, and social emotional profile. The data generated help determine how clients:
Specific strategies and interventions are created and recommended as part of the evaluation to help the individual harness strengths in order to further develop overall performance.
I have developed neuropsychological evaluation expertise with children, adolescents, and adults. My assessment practice has primarily focused on the following concerns and diagnoses:
It is important to note that a neuropsychological evaluation does not necessarily result in a specific diagnosis.
Initial Consultation. The evaluation process begins with a one hour consultation, during which a detailed developmental, social, educational and occupational (when applicable) history is gathered. The initial appointment is for parents only when the evaluation is planned for a child or adolescent.
Evaluation Sessions. Following the first appointment, two separate evaluation sessions will be scheduled, each will last approximately three hours.
Feedback Meeting. A one hour feedback meeting will follow shortly after the final evaluation session, during which findings and diagnoses (when relevant) will be discussed. An extensive report will follow approximately one month after the feedback session.
Collaboration with schools is essential. With parent permission, I ask teachers to complete questionnaires as part of the evaluation process, and I am available to speak with school teams as needed so I can develop a comprehensive understanding of the child or adolescent’s presentation and resulting needs. I am also available to share results in team meetings, and consult with school-based professionals.
I do not accept insurance for neuropsychological evaluations. Many PPO, EPO and other similar insurance plans provide members with out of network benefits. I will supply clients with an itemized receipt, which will allow you to seek reimbursement from your insurance company if you have available out of network benefits. I do not submit billing materials to insurance companies directly.
