Neuropsych Assessment

The comprehensive assessment focuses on developing the student’s complete profile of strengths and weaknesses as a learner. To address issues of concern raised by parents, teachers, and students themselves, each assessment is customized to investigate the cognitive skill, information processing, and emotional and behavioral factors that influence the student’s learning and achievement. Guided by the CHC model of intellectual abilities, all relevant subskills are examined within the broad categories of: crystallized and fluid intelligence, short and long term memory, auditory and visual processing, expressive and receptive language, processing speed, psychomotor skills, attention and executive function, and social/emotional/behavioral functioning. Once the student’s profile has been fully developed, causal inferences can be made between abilities, academic performance, and the student’s social, emotional, and behavioral experience.

My assessments differ from the norm in: how thoroughly and deeply they assess the many factors potentially impacting the child’s development; the links/inferences made between these factors and the child’s actual performance and experience of life; the emphasis on positive factors such as strengths and interests and not just weaknesses; the depth and detail of practical, targeted recommendations provided for implementation at home and school including skill and talent development; and, most importantly, my sensitivity to the emotional needs of students and parents.
