NeuroBehavioral Associates provides comprehensive neuropsychological assessment for children, adolescents, and adults with known or suspected cognitive, learning, or neurodevelopmental differences. Assessments are aimed at providing differential diagnoses, assessment of strengths and weaknesses, and the formation of an effective intervention plan. Our assessments are geared to provide practical and specific recommendations to support children and adolescents in school, at home, and in their communities.
Our assessments include an in-depth interview with the child’s or adolescent’s parents, collection of a detailed neurodevelopmental history, interview with the patient, and administration of a series of standardized tests.
Following test administration, scoring, and report preparation, our neuropsychologist will meet with the child’s family to describe all test findings, diagnoses, patterns of strengths and weaknesses, and recommendations. This meeting typically requires 90 minutes and occurs three to four weeks following the completion of testing. For adolescents and young adults, it may be helpful to meet separately to provide a description of findings consistent with their age and understanding.
NeuroBehavioral Associates will provide a hard copy written report and protected digital report for our clients.
Components of a Comprehensive Neuropsychological Evaluation

- Behavioral Checklists to be completed by parents, teachers, and caregivers
- Intellectual/Cognitive Ability
- Academic Skills

- Fine Motor/Visual Motor Skills
- Verbal and Visual Learning and Memory Skills

Our neuropsychologists are also able to provide an in-office consultation for families who may require more information prior to determining the need for assessment. A neuropsychological consultation typically involves the completion of behavioral checklists and a neurodevelopmental history. The consultation takes place in a 90-minute in-office interview and may be helpful in facilitating planning for a child’s needs.
NeuroBehavioral Associates provides a number of additional services to clients and constituents. Our neuropsychologists routinely attend Individualized Education Program (IEP) planning meetings at various schools throughout the region. Our neuropsychologists are also available to attend planning sessions with local private schools to help formulate accommodation plans. We are able to provide specific testing to determine eligibility for accommodations on standardized tests such as the College Board’s SAT’s, ACT’s, MCAT’s, LSAT’s, or other examinations.
NeuroBehavioral Associates maintains a close working relationship with a number of professions providing psychiatric services, psychotherapy services, educational tutoring, executive coaching, educational consultants, and attorneys who specialize in educational law. At the completion of an evaluation, we will provide a number of referral options for our clients.
