A neuropsychologist is a clinical psychologist who has special training in how the brain affects a child's functioning.
A neuropsychological evaluation involves getting to know your child by talking with you, your child, the medical team, and, if you want, your child's school. The neuropsychologist will want to know about your child's feelings and behavior, and can check your child's thinking skills by giving your child tests that measure things like:

You can share the report with your child's school.
Every insurance plan is a little different. Nearly all plans pay for neuropsychology services, but the amount depends on your policy.
Someone from our team will call your insurance company to find out how your coverage works and how much neuropsychology services might cost you. They will then call you to talk about your coverage and schedule your first appointment.
