Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is characterized by one or more of the following: inattentiveness, hyperactivity, impulsivity, and emotional/behavioral dysregulation. ADHD symptoms can affect all aspects of a persons life, including educational, social, and emotional functioning.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is said to be a “developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life. Early identification and intervention is important to help an individual live the best life they can.
A concussion or a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is an injury to the brain that typically does not cause long-term injury to the brain. However, more severe brain injuries can have long-lasting effects. A neuropsychological evaluation can help identify you or your child's strengths and weaknesses and help with decisions regarding treatment, educational, and vocational needs.
Many medical conditions have neurological and neuropsychological impact. Our staff provides evaluations for individuals with a variety of neurological conditions, such as epilepsy, neurocognitive late effects from cancer treatment, vascular disorders, and infections, such as meningitis, encephalitis, and COVID-related conditions.
Learning disabilities, such are difficulties with reading and math, are important to identify early on in a child's life so that appropriate educational strategies can be applied. These processing problems can interfere with learning basic skills such as reading, writing, and/or math. They can also interfere with higher level skills such as organization, time planning, abstract reasoning, long or short term memory and attention.
