Neuropsychological Evaluation for School
Employed individuals who have had traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, or other neurological conditions can benefit from evaluation as they return to work to help pinpoint:
- Can help diagnose whether someone has developmental learning disabilities (LD) or Attention Deficit Disorder / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD or ADHD).
- Can help identify any persisting cognitive effects of concussions and other types of acquired brain injury.
- Will include recommended individualized accommodations for a student related to his or her learning or attentional issues (such as extended testing time for school exams or SAT/ACT tests, testing in a quieter separate room, rest breaks during testing, note taker, etc).
- Can be required by schools for proper documentation of LD- or ADD/ADHD-related accommodations in a 504 Plan or an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Testing may need to be updated every three years.
- Can document changes over time in a student’s strengths and cognitive difficulties.
Our neuropsychologists are available to take part in educational team meetings to explain test findings and advocate for the implementation of appropriate accommodations.
