evaluations

The assessment services offered by Neurocognitive Consultants of Orlando are designed to facilitate understanding of how individuals function and learn by using reliable neuropsychological, educational, and psychodiagnostic tests. An evaluation is most helpful when a cognitive problem, disability, and/or psychological disorder is suspected. Such evaluations may offer diagnostic clarity and related treatment, educational or occupational recommendations.  

 

More specifically, a comprehensive evaluation is intended to offer increased awareness of why an individual may be struggling to meet environmental demands or developmental milestones. The process often helps to solidify appropriate clinical diagnoses, but more importantly, works to identify which interventional or support services are needed in order for individuals to perform at their best. As such, upon written consent, our team will communicate as needed with physicians, psychiatrists, therapists, school professionals, and other psychologists in order to coordinate management of the individual’s treatment plan, educational programs, and/or other necessary referrals or placements.

 

Several types of evaluations are offered by Neurocognitive Consultants of Orlando in order to understand an individual’s strengths and weaknesses and make an accurate diagnosis.

Through our integrated approach, patients and their families will understand all of the pieces of the puzzle.

A systematic review of specific cognitive, social, behavioral, occupational/academic, and emotional data obtained in testing will get you the answers you've been seeking.

A report is also provided to you with a detailed analysis of the test results, personalized intervention strategies, and referrals.

Our team will offer consultation services in order to support families in implementing recommendations. We will work in partnership with other professionals to identify and access appropriate services post-evaluation.

In short, we strive to make the evaluation process as comprehensive and informative as possible for our patients and their families.
