For neuropsychological testing services the initial appointment is one hour where we discuss pertinent medical history, background information, educational and family history, as well as the presenting problem in order to gain a deeper understanding of the symptoms and behaviors that are impacting your child’s performance.
During the initial appointment, if testing is determined to be necessary, testing appointments will be scheduled (between 4-6 hours). At that time, payment will be made for those hours. Once testing has been completed, parents are invited back to go over results where feedback will be given (1 hour).
Thirty days after the feedback a written report will be provided to parents.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding neuropsychological testing, please call our office. Thank you.
