Pediatric Neuropsychology Testing

What children would benefit from a Neuropsychology evaluation?

Clinical Neuropsychology is the practice of assessing and diagnosing development concerns such as autism, ADHD, and cognitive delays. Our team focuses heavily on research to better understand what causes these delays and enhance our diagnostic program.

A child may be referred for a neuropsychological evaluation when there are concerns about one or more areas of their development. This can include a child’s cognitive, academic, memory, language, social, self-regulatory, emotional, behavioral, motor, visual-spatial, and adaptive functioning.

This type of evaluation can help rule out diagnoses such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity DisorderAutism Spectrum DisorderSpecific Learning DisorderLanguage Disorder, as well as various emotional and behavioral disorders. A neuropsychological evaluation can also be helpful if your child has been diagnosed with a medical condition such as Down Syndrome or other genetic disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury, or Epilepsy. The purpose of the evaluation is to identify a child’s patterns of strengths and challenges in order to provide parents, schools, and other providers with strategies to help them succeed across contexts. It can also be used to track a child’s progress and response to targeted interventions.

Client Reviews

My husband and I were so impressed with our experience at your clinic. We had anxieties about having our 4 year old evaluated – but we couldn’t be happier with the experience and with the results. We now feel like we have a more comprehensive understanding of our son’s strengths and weaknesses. We feel like we know better as parents how to help him reach his full potential.

Our son Ian received two evaluations by Dr. Greg Stasi & we were very impressed with the thoroughness of the evaluations & the time Dr. Stasi took to explain the results. It was extremely beneficial in determining what treatment Ian would receive both at NSPT & in school.
