St. Croix Valley Pediatric Neuropsychology offers neuropsychological assessments for children and transition age youth/young adults. In some instances this may be as young as 36-months up to around age 25-years. Specific developmental, medical and other concerns can factor into that decision.
A child may benefit from an assessment for a variety of reasons:
- Diagnostic clarity of possible neurodevelopmental disorder (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, etc.)
- Potential complications related to prenatal toxicant exposure (e.g., alcohol, other substances, etc.)
- Potential impact of epilepsy
- Medical/neurological condition (e.g., tumor, surgery, treatment)
- Genetic syndromes
- To assess the impact of specific incident (e.g., head injury)
- Other medical conditions
- Identify specific patterns of learning strength and weakness
- To provide additional information that could be helpful for IEP and other supports
Each evaluation typically includes parent interview, review of records, and standardized testing. Following the completion of testing we meet to discuss the results and you are provided a written summary with recommendations for support. This process can be helpful for tracking progress over time and clarifying appropriate educational and other supports (e.g., IEP, 504, behavioral strategies, etc.).
