The determination of which evaluation is appropriate for your child is  dependent on the child's age at testing.

The Neuropsychological or Neurodevelopmental evaluation includes the following:

1. Intake session: Dr. Schneider meets with each family to get a better understanding of the current concerns, the child's history, the family, and complete necessary paperwork to begin the evaluative process.

2.Observation Session:  Dr. Schneider will go to your child's school, day care center, or other setting to complete a behavior observation session.  This hour long observation will include conversations with teachers, head of school or department, and any additional educators who knows your child well. 


3. Testing sessions: Each assessment tool is specifically selected to best match the child and referral question. Areas assessed in an evaluation include:

Intellectual Functioning:(IQ)
measuring verbal and non-verbal skills, cognitive ability, and processing speed.

evaluating reading, mathematics, written language, and oral language skills.

4. Following each testing session, Dr. Schneider will provide verbal feedback of the progress made during testing.

5. A comprehensive evaluation includes interviews, observations, collaboration with physicians, and partnerships with schools.

6. Every family is provided with a written report, with interpretations of results, diagnoses, and action plan, which is presented during the feedback session.
Follow up with other professionals, as well as schools is an essential part of implementation of an action plan.

When coming for an evaluation, approximately 2- 1 1/2 hour appointments should be allotted. At times there are more than 2 sessions that last less than 1 1/2 hours due to the individual child's needs and their age.

While all of the time may not be needed, Dr. Schneider will make sure your child has an opportunity to use the rest room or take a break if needed. For best performance your child should be well-rested and had breakfast or a snack.
