• Assesses intellectual abilities, academic abilities, motor skills, sensory/perceptual abilities, and other key areas

• An essential component in determining more subtle, underlying factors that contribute to work/school                       failure, behavioral changes, or alteration in mood

• Do I need a referral? Although it is not required to have a doctor’s referral to schedule an appointment, insurance will generally not cover neuropsychological testing without a referral. If you choose to go forth with an evaluation without a referral, it is likely you will be paying solely out-of-pocket.

• What is a neuropsychological evaluation? Please refer back to our neuropsychological evaluation overview page, or for a more in-depth discussion of presurgical evaluations, we have prepared a lengthier document - available by clicking here.

• How long will the evaluation take? This question is difficult to answer because every patient and evaluation is different. For most patients, we generally expect evaluations to last the length of a school or work day, with a lunch break around 11:30am. Presurgical evaluations generally take less time, usually lasting about 4 hours. Of course, these are just estimates and length of assessment will vary from patient to patient.

• What insurance do you accept?  We accept: Blue Cross/Blue Shield, CIGNA, Aetna, Medicare, AmeriChoice, AmeriGroup, TennCare, TriCare Standard, PHCS, Anthem BCBS, and Multi-plan. For any out-of-pocket charges, we accept: Visa, Mastercard,

       and personal checks.

• Can my child’s school conduct this evaluation instead? We have prepared a document regarding the differences and similarities between the testing provided at school and what we, as neuropsychologists, provide. We have made this available here.

 

 

How do I choose the right person to evaluate my child?  When considering who is going to evaluate your child, it is important to ask if the neuropsychologist has specific training with children. Many individuals may state  that they can evaluate children for learning disabilities, ADHD, etc., but very few have specialized training and completed post-doctoral fellowships in child/pediatric neuropsychology. Effective and thorough evaluation of children requires a thorough understanding of brain development at different stages of childhood and how each  child's unique pattern of strengths and weaknesses impacts the development of intellectual, behavioral, social, and academic abilities. You chose your child's pediatrician based upon his/her education, training, and experience with children; make sure you take the time to do the same when deciding who is evaluating your child for concerns related to learning, behavior, and attention.
