Psychological & Neuropsychological Assessment

I conduct two types of assessments: psychological and neuropsychological for people of kindergarten age through adulthood. For more information about each, please see my FAQ page. A brief description:

  • Psychological Assessments are often covered by insurance, don't include reports, and answer the question: "Do I have ADHD (or ASD or Dyslexia, etc.) or not?" They take less time and cost less money. These can happen virtually OR in person.

  • Neuropsychological Assessments are only occasionally covered by insurance, involve lengthy interviews, cognitive and other testing, and record reviews, often include detailed reports, and are often used to obtain educational and workplace accommodations. For detailed information on neuropsychological assessments, see below. The interview and feedback portions of these assessments can happen virtually, but the actual testing itself must happen in-person (I require proof of vaccination).

I use thorough neuropsychological assessments to diagnose and create interventions for disorders such as:

  • ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder)

  • ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)

  • Gifted & Talented (and Twice Exceptional- 2E)

  • Learning Disorders (ex: Dyslexia, Dyscalculia)

This consists of a battery of research-validated assessment instruments which may include some but not all of the below:

  • ADHD Rating Scale- 5 (Children and Adolescents)

Neuropsychological assessments occur across 1-3 sessions and I provide feedback and your report soon after completing testing. We meet in-person and I'm licensed in California, Hawaii, and New York. I screen and assess for multiple diagnoses simultaneously as they form part of the larger diagnostic picture and inform treatment and recommendations.
