Helpful Neurodevelopmental Assessments

Parents are encouraged to bring detailed notes that describe their concerns. Results of previous evaluations are helpful if parents wish to share them. The first visit is very important, so we want to make sure that we are as prepared as we possibly can be.

Our neurodevelopmental assessment usually takes an hour and a half to two hours, and it is often followed by an informational visit to review the findings. During the assessment, we obtain a comprehensive medical and developmental history. 

We also perform thorough physical and neurological examinations.  We request neurodiagnostic testing and laboratory examinations when they are appropriate.

Neurodevelopmental testing assesses the underlying functions of attention, memory, language, behavior, fine motor, gross motor skills, and play. This is usually done using a variety of measures and questionnaires that are obtained from the parents, guardians, schools, and other personnel.

Working Hard to Help Your Child

Detailed observation coupled with the administration of a variety of tests will lead to a detailed description of the child's unique profile. We generate a comprehensive report, which allows you to communicate with other professionals and systems. Our staff members will work diligently to find the right treatment for your child. Some examples of conditions that are diagnosed by developmental pediatricians include:

• Developmental Delays
• Autistic Spectrum Disorder
• Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
• Speech & Language Delays 
• Oppositional Defiant Disorder

• Anxiety Disorder
• Learning Disability
• Cognitive Delays
• Motor Delays & Cerebral Palsy
