Evaluations We Offer
As leaders in caring for children, teens and adults who have complex neurological conditions, our neuropsychologists are committed to using the latest evaluation techniques and treatments.
Although each patient follows a unique care path, our neuropsychologists typically perform an initial evaluation to provide baseline information. That information can help identify problems and allow for tracking as skills and behaviors change. Evaluations might include testing and gathering information from family members, caregivers, other health-care providers and teachers.
After an evaluation, our experts will recommend appropriate home, school and community interventions. We might recommend that patients undergo additional assessments, see other Gillette specialists, or receive referrals to community providers.
