Other Evaluation Services

Other than the specific evaluations already listed, I also provide other psychological and neuropsychological assessment options, as I realize your/your child's symptoms and concerns may not be as clear cut as seeking out an assessment for a specific diagnosis. During your free consultation call, we will discuss your presenting concerns, as well as your expectations & hopes for the evaluation, in order to best determine the best course for your/your child's individualized assessment.
