Neuropsychological Evaluations: What are they and what to look for in an evaluator?
In this webinar, NESCA’s Founder and Director, Pediatric Neuropsychologist Ann Helmus, Ph.D., will explain what a neuropsychological evaluation is, how it can be a vehicle to getting the appropriate supports for a child or adolescent who is struggling academically, psychologically, socially or developmentally. Dr. Helmus will discuss what you should look for in a neuropsychological evaluator and what should be in the resulting report. She will also delve into NESCA’s philosophy that the tests administered in a neuropsychological evaluation are not what diagnoses the person being tested…the people who are evaluating the child or student do.

Apr 28, 2021 10:30 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
