A neuropsychological evaluation covers all areas of child’s functioning, including intellectual skills (IQ), academics, attention, executive functioning, working memory, processing speed, memory, language, visualspatial/visuoconstructional skills, sensorimotor/fine motor dexterity, adaptive/life skills, and psychological health. This type of evaluation aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of all factors that may be impacting a child’s functioning in school, at home, or other social settings. Children and adolescents are typically referred for a neuropsychological evaluation by a parent, medical doctor, teacher, school psychologist, or other professional for one or more of the following reasons.
