Medical and Psychological Evaluations
Our medical and psychological/neuropsychological evaluations and services are designed to support development, family relationships, self-regulation, social-emotional functioning, and long-term mental health in children and teens who are 4 to 18 years old. Services include:
We can provide consultation in-person, over the phone, or through a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform to address questions and concerns that caregivers may have about their child’s development and behavior. In addition to consultation about development and behavior, we can review child’s previous evaluations, with special consideration to the needs of children with a history of prenatal substance exposure, trauma, or family mental health issues.
Many parents and caregivers have concerns about their child’s development, educational performance, or how life events have affected their child’s functioning. Psychological and educational screenings use clinical interviews, standardized measures, and other available information (e.g., from records and/or consultation with CRT’s pediatrician) to screen for various learning, behavioral, and mental health issues, such as learning disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety-related concerns, depression, trauma-related disorders, and other diagnoses. We provide recommendations to support your child’s development at the conclusion of each screening, such as through discussing the need for more in-depth evaluation or additional services.
Comprehensive Medical and Psychological Evaluations
The team of CRT professionals that conducts our comprehensive medical and psychological evaluations includes a psychologist and a pediatrician. We also have neuropsychologists on staff who are able to participate in comprehensive medical and neuropsychological evaluations. The evaluations themselves can include in-depth assessment of your child’s intellectual functioning, learning, adaptive functioning, motor skills, sensory processing, language, executive functioning, and/or social-emotional development. The pediatrician will also perform a physical examination, and you will receive feedback on your child’s performance and needs at the conclusion of the evaluation. Additionally, we will provide recommendations for services and/or activities to support your child’s ongoing development, and we will prepare and send a written report once the evaluation is complete.
We can provide individual or group parent education about a wide range of subjects, such as typical child development, preterm infant development, the effects of prenatal substance exposure, developmental delays, birth challenges and health problems that can impact development, sleep problems, feeding and nutrition, developmentally appropriate discipline, behavior concerns (e.g., temper tantrums, aggressive behavior, bullying, etc.), trauma, and adjustment to family transitions. We can also provide information about various diagnoses, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
