Evaluations



We have answers

Thank you for choosing Boston Neuropsychological Services.  Our expert staff have been trained at places such as Children’s Hospital of Boston, Harvard University, and the Yale Child Study Center.  We are confident that the evaluation process will help set your child on a path to higher achievement.

Because we have several specially trained clinicians for each age group, you will not be stuck on a year-long waiting list.  Please call to find out our current scheduling availability.

Following the evaluation, you will have a report that clearly explains the factors that limit success.  We will provide clear recommendations for home and school, and you will receive the report in about three weeks.

If desired, we will accompany you to a meeting with your school district to help write an Early Intervention Plan, Individualized Education Program (IEP), or 504 Accommodation Plan.

Evaluations Process

When you call our office, staff will describe our services, discuss your concerns and collect personal contact and insurance information. Our staff will then contact you with information about insurance benefits and schedule an in-person, intake appointment. Once an intake appointment is scheduled, you will need to download the age appropriate client paperwork to bring to your intake.

The intake specialist will conduct a one to two hour intake interview to identify the problem areas and determine the appropriate assessment measures and neuropsychologist for you or your child’s evaluation. The intake specialist will also discuss a service contract and payment options for the evaluation. An evaluation is then scheduled typically within 4-6 weeks of the intake appointment.
Please bring with you:

  • Age appropriate client paperwork
  • Any relevant contact information for mental health providers or teachers
  • Any relevant mental health or school records (ie. Current Individualized Education Plan (IEP), previous Neuropsychological Evaluation reports)
  • Insurance card
  • Intake payment if applicable

The testing lasts anywhere from a few hours to a full day with breaks as needed. Occasionally, a second day of testing is needed. This comprehensive evaluation may include a diagnostic interview, observation, and computerized/paper-and-pencil tests. Interviews with parents, teachers, doctors, or other professionals may occur before or after the day of testing. A feedback session is then scheduled typically within 4 weeks of the evaluation.

Following the evaluation, you will have a report that clearly identifies area of personal strengths and potential limiting factors that may limit success.

During your feedback session, the neuropsychologist will review your evaluation report and discuss results, diagnosis, and recommendations. Together you will develop a plan to help successfully reach your goals. This may include scheduling future follow-up or therapy appointments. If desired, we can also accompany you to a meeting with your school district to help write an Early Intervention Plan, Individualized Education Program (IEP), or 504 Accommodation Plan.

Follow-up: If desired, we will accompany you to a meeting with your school district to help write an Early Intervention Plan, Individualized Education Program (IEP), or 504 Accommodation Plan. You may wish to pursue tutoring or counseling services with us.

We can even consult regarding the IEP process and help advocate for services.
