What Do Neuropsychological Testing Results Mean?

The results of a Neuropsychological Evaluation will be extremely beneficial for your child. By comparing their test scores to the general population, the neuropsychologist is able to construct a personalized profile of your child's cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

The benefits to such an analysis include:

  • Uncovering the reasons why your child might be experiencing problems in school. Every child has his or her own unique learning style; what works for one child might be ineffective for another. Thus, a child might encounter difficulties in reading because of a language disorder, an auditory processing problem, a reading disability or an attention issue.

    The results of the neuropsychological assessment can help the pediatric neuropsychologist to design specific interventions that will focus upon your child's strengths. Skills that need work are also identified, and recommendations to strengthen these areas are provided.

  • Identifying a child's specific learning disability can ensure that the child is receiving appropriate treatment. Each childhood disorder manifests itself in patterns of strengths and weaknesses, and affects different areas of the brain. This assessment specifically tests these areas in order to determine if there is a weakness present.
