Testing begins with an intake session to discuss the goals for the evaluation and to throughly review the patient's history. Any previous evaluations and school records should be provided before or during the intake session. Testing sessions typically take place over the course of 2-4 mornings, depending on the type of evaluation. A couple of weeks after the last testing session, the patient and/or parents will return for a feedback session to review the test results and recommendations. A copy of the test report will be provided after the feedback session. Dr. Rosch is also available to attend school meetings to discuss the test results and recommendations.
Neuropsychological evaluations typically examine the following abilities: cognitive, academic, expressive and receptive language, memory, attention, and executive functioning. Social-emotional screening is provided as part of this evaluation as well. This type of evaluation is appropriate when there are concerns related to learning or ADHD.
Psychological evaluations typically include all of the areas covered in the neuropsychological evaluations, plus social-emotional functioning. This type of evaluation is appropriate when there are concerns about emotions playing a significant role in why a person is struggling or diagnostic clarification is needed.
