What does a Neuropsychologist do? Could They Help My Kid with Special Education?

Do you have a child who is diagnosed with autism, which is far behind their grade fitting peers and you wonder what the reason is? Do you have a child who has a learning disability and who have received special education services for quite many years now, with little to no progress? Or do you have anxieties over the fact that your child may have dyslexia or other undiagnosed incapacities, and wonder if a neuropsychological evaluation for child could help yours? An assessment with a neuropsychologist could assist in diagnosing why your child is not learning, and what educational and associated services they require in order to see progress in their education. This article will talk about what a neuropsychologist is, the goal of their assessments, and disabilities that they may diagnose in your kid.

A neuropsychologist possesses much more training than a standard psychologist or a school psychologist. A neuropsychologist needs to have a doctorate in psychology, as well as years of supplementary neuroscience experience and training.

The neuropsychology training comprises of training in neuropsychiatry neurology, psychology, and health disciplines. To be capable in this area necessitates several years of added training and experience beyond the doctorate compulsory for conventional practice. Some neuropsychologists are in private practice and may prefer to work with children only.

The purpose of neuropsychological evaluation for a child is:

1. To find probable problems with brain functioning.

2. To demonstrate if a child is suffering from any undiagnosed disabilities. These could be dyslexia or other language-based illnesses, Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), autism, etc. These incapacities could explain why your child is suffering from learning difficulties.

3. To achieve a determination on what educational and related services a child requires, in order to accomplish progress in their education.

4. To put forward a child's brain related weaknesses and strengths.

5. To take into account changes in the child's functioning over time.

Many parents who accompany their child to a neuropsychologist are forced to do so since their child is not accomplishing progress in their education, or the parent feels like knowing what specific services their child requires. When the testing is achieved, and the report is completed, many parents will then bring this to the school and make a request to them for the provision of needed services.

Many parents seek neuropsychological assessments and treatment for these common conditions:

1. Autism spectrum disorder
2. Dyslexia
3. Verbal and nonverbal learning disabilities
4. ADD or ADHD
5. Pervasive Developmental Disorder-NOS
6. Sensory processing disorder
7. Tourette's Syndrome
8. Central auditory processing disorder

Keep in mind that you not only need a neuropsychologist that can test your kid, but you also want one that can give offer precise recommendations about what services your child requires.
