Assessment

Dr. Leopold provides psychological evaluations for children and teens.  An assessment can be a valuable tool to help identify underlying reasons a child is struggling academically, socially, and/or behaviorally. Psychological testing may be needed to accurately diagnose certain learning or developmental disorders, as well as giftedness.

Common reasons for testing include concerns about:
  • ADHD/ADD/Executive functioning challenges
  • Learning disabilities (i.e., Dyslexia)
  • Speech/language disorders
  • Developmental delay
  • Autism spectrum/Asperger's
  • Social, emotional, and/or behavioral difficulties
  • Giftedness

Once testing is completed, Dr. Leopold will meet with you to discuss the results and recommendations.  She will provide you with a detailed written  report that can be shared with others involved in your child's care.

Dr. Leopold is available to meet with relevant professionals to discuss the results​ of the evaluation, to attend school meetings (i.e., SST, 504 and IEP meetings), and to help parents connect their child with appropriate services, supports, and resources in the community.
