The Diagnostic Program provides comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations conducted by a licensed neuropsychologist that cover the areas of cognition, academics, processing, executive functioning, memory, and social/emotional issues. Assessments typically occur on two visits, and a final written evaluation report is usually completed within 4-6 weeks of the final visit. At that time, the family will have a meeting with the Diagnostic team to discuss any questions, recommendations, or referrals that may come up as a result of testing.
