Cognitive and Behavioral Consultants is now offering Neuropsychological Evaluations for individuals aged three through adulthood. There are many ways a neuropsychological assessment can be beneficial, including:
- Explaining why an individual is struggling to achieve his/her academic potential.
- Determining how an existing diagnosis, such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD, impacts learning and cognitive processing.
- Highlighting an individual’s learning profile, which guides our formulation of comprehensive recommendations for home and school.
- Diagnostic clarification.
- Determining if a student qualifies for accommodations (i.e. extended time) in school and on standardized tests.
- Developing an appropriate plan to support a student in
Within our evaluations, we assess multiple aspects of cognition, namely:
- Language Processing
- Nonverbal Reasoning
- Processing Speed
- Executive Functioning
Following the evaluation, we work closely with our patients to ensure that recommendations are able to be effectively implemented. Oftentimes, this involves collaboration with teachers, therapists, and physicians.
Additionally, CBC offers individual and group sessions supporting the development of executive functions, including: planning, scheduling, organizing, getting started, and persisting in the face of a challenge.
