Bayer Neurobehavioral Center is proud to offer both assessments and therapy 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:
- Developmental Disabilities
- Neurodevelopmental Disorders (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD)
- Learning Disabilities
- Anxiety / Depression
- Disruptive Behavior Disorders (e.g. ODD)
- School problems
Preparing your child for the evaluation
- Be positive
- Make sure he/she is well rested and has a good breakfast
- Give medications as prescribed
