What is a School Neuropsychological Evaluation?

This assessment delves into your child’s comprehensive cognitive, behavioral, and learning profile, addressing your specific concerns and queries. At Mind by Design, our focus is on understanding the intricacies of how your child’s mind functions. We aim to capture a complete picture of your child’s individuality and how it influences their learning, enabling us to identify the most effective support for their growth and success.

If you’re considering a school neuropsychological or psychoeducational evaluation, you’ve come to the right place. We approach these evaluations in the same way and use the terms interchangeably. We ensure each is as thorough as necessary to respond to referral questions and craft personalized support strategies.
