Bayer Neurobehavioral Center is proud to offer assessments for children and adolescents.
Child/Adolescent Assessments may be recommended when children are experiencing difficulties at school, home, or with their peers.
Assessments are comprehensive and include administration and interpretation of psychological tests, along with an interview with child, family, and teachers as needed. Some test activities are written, some verbal, and some are tasks that are similar to puzzles. Results from these tests are integrated with knowledge of a child's history, developmental level, and social, emotional and behavioral functioning to provide recommendations to the family, school, and physicians when appropriate. Recommendations may include treatments options, accommodations for school, and/or educational resources.
Some of the common conditions addressed are as follows:
Neurodevelopmental Disorders (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD)
Anxiety / Depression
Disruptive Behavior Disorders (e.g. ODD)
Preparing your child for the evaluation
Make sure he/she is well rested and has a good breakfast
Give medications as prescribed
