A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation may be recommended by a neurologist, pediatrician, or Child Study Team to measure a child’s intellectual and academic abilities, information processing, learning and memory, attention and executive functioning, and other relevant cognitive skills. It might also address social, emotional, and/or behavioral concerns. A variety of assessments are used to collect these data, depending on the specific referral question. This workshop will address what to expect from a neuropsychological evaluation, how a neuropsychologist evaluates these abilities, the value of neuropsychological assessments for children and adolescents, and what doctors, educators, and parents can learn from then.
