In-Depth Assessments

In-depth assessments help us understand how a child is functioning in a variety of key areas vital to successful functioning in school, at home and in social relationships. 

Our process includes:

  • A thorough Clinical Interview with records review and with input from both parents and teachers/care providers
  • A targeted Assessment utilizing comprehensive and nationally normed one-on-one testing procedures with the patient
  • A Feedback Session to discuss the Treatment Plan with parents/guardians during which Dr. Cato offers evidence-based, tailored tools and resources to allow each patient to achieve their full potential in and outside of school

Our personalized, comprehensive neuropsychological assessment services are designed to guide each patient on the bridge toward independence. Primarily focused on pediatrics, but available to young adults, typical assessments include measures of:

  • Intellectual functions (IQ)
  • Language
  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Academic achievement
  • Fine motor functioning
  • Speech
  • Mood  and behavior
