How Can We Help You?
If you know or suspect that your child has difficulty learning, The HALO Centers can assist by performing neuropsychological evaluation to help you better understand how your child's brain functions. Based upon the results, the HALO team will coordinate the most effective plan of treatment and provide continued follow-up and guidance.
The HALO team is committed not only to identifying your child's specific learning needs, but also to assist in obtaining all the services required to maximize your child's potential and academic achievement.
- Neuropsychological Evaluation and Assessment
Neuropsychologists perform the testing and are trained in understanding the relationship between brain functioning and behavior. In contrast to a school-based evaluation, a neuropsychological assessment includes a greater number of more specific tests which provide in-depth information regarding a child's cognitive (thinking skills) abilities. Neuropsychologists determine how an individual receives, processes and uses information and, by understanding this information, can recommend teaching and learning strategies best suited for maximum learning benefit.
- Recommendations and Follow-up Support
Our neuropsychological evaluation report will contain recommendations specifically tailored to your child's strengths and needs. HALO also provides resources related to specific diagnoses and can offer referrals for follow-up tutoring and treatment. We also provide support related to post-testing decisions and academic planning.
