Dr. Emily Lantz, a licensed clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist will partner with the NYC Chapter of Mothers and More on Wednesday, September 21 at 6:30 pm to discuss "What a neuropsychological evaluation is and how to know if your child needs one."
Dr. Lantz will review what to expect during the evaluation and how testing helps diagnosis between learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other developmental or acquired brain disorders. In addition, a neuropsychological evaluation helps parents better understand their child's strengths and weaknesses, intellectual abilities and academic needs (e.g. classroom and test accommodations) by providing a cognitive and learning profile for each child. The result of the evaluation is a comprehensive written report and a thorough review of tests results during the verbal feedback session.
The event will be held at MoonSoup (http://www.moonsoup.net/)
1059 2nd Avenue between 55th and 56th Streets in New York City
