NeuroDevelopment Center of Colorado uses a children’s hospital evaluation model. Families visit with a psychologist to discuss concerns and developmental history before any testing is considered. The test battery is selected for each client only after the psychologist and family have discussed main objectives.
Evaluation sessions are tailored to each client and the questions at hand. Typically there are three to four 90-minute testing sessions, although the number of sessions and length of time are individualized for each client. Many assessment activities are hands-on and engaging.
All test interpretation and analysis is performed by the psychologist who provided the initial interview. When testing is complete, families are invited to review findings and recommendations in person.
A written report is also provided to help families communicate strategies with teachers and other health care providers. NCC takes pride in providing a clinical record that parents find useful.
