When an injury or illness causes problems with your child’s thinking, feelings, language or behavior, they may be referred for neuropsychological evaluation. The purpose is to assess your child’s thinking skills, school performance, emotions and behavioral functioning. Then we provide recommendations for school, home and the community. The evaluation typically includes tests of intelligence (IQ), memory, learning, attention, problem solving and academic achievement. During testing, your child will be asked to complete hands-on activities, answer questions and sometimes use a computer. You and your child may also fill in paper-and-pencil questionnaires. If needed, a speech-language pathologist will also evaluate your child on a separate day.
