All children are unique and grow and develop at their own pace. Some children, however, seem to struggle to reach developmental milestones at the expected time and need more help to be successful academically, emotionally, and/or socially.
Child Psych Services offers a variety of evaluation services:
A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation measures multiple aspects of brain functioning including reasoning skills, processing speed, working memory, language development, visual processing skills, memory, attention, concentration, executive functioning skills, and emotional and behavioral functioning.
An Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) is an evaluation of the educational needs of a child completed by someone outside of the school system. IEEs are paid for by school districts, and are an option for parents who believe the school district’s own evaluation of their child is incomplete or incorrect.
Just as each child is unique, so is each evaluation. All evaluations include an initial interview during which Dr. Miller will meet with you to discuss your concerns for your child. Information shared is used to develop a specific assessment plan that is tailored to meet your child’s specific needs.
Evaluations can be comprehensive and assess areas typically evaluated in a neuropsychological evaluation or can target a specific area of concern.
Most often, a child’s parents are the first to notice and express concern about their child’s development, and may observe problems in school, at home, or during social interactions with others.
Parents seek evaluation services to increase their understanding of their child’s functioning to guide their efforts to help.
