Assessments

The purpose of psychological evaluations is to determine what is happening in someone’s life that may be hampering their ability to perform, think, behave, feel, or achieve in a more appropriate or constructive way either at home, school,  or the workplace. We specialize in: Psychological, Neuropsychological, Bariatric, Spinal Cord Stimulator, and Psychoeducational evaluation. Diagnostic evaluations are performed either in-office or at home through teleassessment.

Neurocognitive Screening ($50/test)

Brain neuro-check battery for memory loss, cognitive decline, and attention issues. You may benefit from this test if you have concerns about your cognitive status after an accident, head trauma, behavioral concerns, stress, change in medication, or just curious about your mental or cognitive baseline. Are you receiving treatment and want to monitor its progress or perform an Annual Brain Neurocheck (BNC)

Psychological

A psychological evaluation is an assessment performed by a licensed psychologist to determine the exact nature and extent of a person’s mental illness. This evaluation generally involves multiple components, which can include answering questions verbally and completing a questionnaire. At no point in the process is a psychologist judging you, rather, they are working to help you understand and manage any issues or symptoms impacting your life.

Neuropsychological

Neuropsychological evaluations look at how the health of your brain affects your thinking skills and behavior. A neuropsychological assessment looks at a wide range of brain functions and skills to see what might be affecting learning or behavior. The goal is to find the reason why individuals are struggling. A neuropsychological evaluation measures things like attention span and memory. It looks at other areas too, like language and thinking skills. Neuropsychological testing can pinpoint problem areas. It also looks at strengths and recommends ways to help individuals thrive.

Bariatric

A bariatric psych evaluation is done prior to any weight-loss surgery.bariatric surgery has inherent risks and requires highly restrictive, long-term behavioral changes afterward. Therefore, these patients typically are required to complete a thorough evaluation, including psychological assessment, to determine their appropriateness for surgery. This assessment can help identify the strengths and resources of the individual seeking surgery, can prepare for any psychosocial risk factors that need attention, and can provide recommendations to address possible adjustment concerns.

Spinal Cord Stimulator Assessment

Some patients suffer from chronic pain, particularly back pain that does not remit, despite a long course of a variety of pain management treatments. 

Psycho-educational

A psychoeducational evaluation sometimes referred to as a psych-ed eval or school neuropsychological assessment is how a student learns. It measures different types of reasoning, memory, and working efficiency. This is in contrast to learned knowledge, like math facts or vocabulary definitions. Psychoeducational evaluations are most commonly recommended for students who are either gifted or having difficulty in school. However, the information in a psycho-educational evaluation is great for every student.

Intervention & treatment

The goal is to provide neurophysiological psychology-based motor-auditory and visual stimulation to enhance developmental and cognitive structural foundation for learning. Research indicates that mind-body, neurodevelopmental, sensorimotor and cognitive abilities are the root cause to challenges faced by children and adults with learning, sports and work performance issues. Neurodevelopment and cognitive skills are considered the basic foundations for academic, athletic and job success. Intervention is directed at improving learning by strengthening neuropathways based on patterns of strengths and weakness. These skills have to be practiced daily in-clinic and/or at-home with support. 

Treatment modality is based on neurostimulation with integrated therapeutic listening systems (iLS), interactive metronome (IM), rhythmic movement training (RMT), safe and sound protocol (SSP), cognitive development (Equippingminds), mindfulness-based trauma-informed subtle movement, social engagement and communication. This bottom-up approach to learning difficulties, academic, sports and work performance targets neurophysiological structural and foundational processes which include but not limited to challenges with: 

  • Visual Processing Difficulties 
  • Auditory hypersensitivity and Processing Disorder 
  • ADD – ADHD 
  • Genetic defect 
  • Lack of progress with tutoring
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
  • Language Delay
  • Sensory Integration Dysfunction
  • Down Syndrome
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Post-Concussion Syndrome
  • Memory Difficulties
  • Chronic illness
  • Bedwetting
  • Behavioral, emotional, and stress-related problems
  • Childhood Trauma, PTSD
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Reading, math, and comprehension
  • Motor and Balance coordination
  • Executive problems
  • Social engagement and communication
  • Language delay

Consulting

Homeschooling, public and private schools, foster care families with children struggling academically, socially, behaviorally, or simply learning differently could benefit from both in-office and/or at-home training. With the appropriate logistics and support, parents and caregivers actively participate and engage in using evidenced-based brain training modalities to enhance their child’s ability to improve performance in academics, sports, and wellness. These systems improve neurodevelopmental, sensorimotor, and cognitive development. Once underlying cognitive skills are strengthened, academic skills become easier. Students are taught to make connections to subjects through vocabulary development, visualization of letters for spelling, reading, oral and written expression, reading comprehension, and visualization of numbers for math sense.
