Supporting Healthcare Providers

Child & Adolescent Psychologist Assessments

As a medical provider, you play a critical role in promoting the health and well-being of your patients. Sometimes this requires support from mental health professionals.

At Brain Insights, we work closely with pediatricians, therapists, and healthcare professionals to support the health and happiness of our children through neuropsychological, psychological, and psychoeducational testing.

What are the benefits of testing?

Clarify a diagnosis

Having your patient tested can help to provide clarity to a diagnosis so both the parent and the child have a precise understanding of the cognitive functioning and conditions of their particular diagnosis. This will help guide treatment and intervention strategies in order to receive effective and customized support.

Validate struggles

Prior to testing, it can be hard for a child or teenager to understand why they are struggling over things that should be easy. Testing can help validate those struggles by confirming their difficulties and providing reasoning behind them. This can be incredibly reassuring for both the parent and child and be the first step towards finding effective strategies of support.

Inform treatment planning

Any diagnosis can present in a different way for each individual. Testing provides critical insights that inform precise treatment planning reflecting a patient’s specific strengths and differences. This can help their team of medical professionals develop customized interventions and strategies to address their cognitive challenges effectively.

Identify areas of difficulty

Every patient is different. Neuropsychological testing will clearly identify a child’s unique strengths and differences and offer a clear roadmap for addressing those challenges.

Identify learning profile

Neuropsychological testing uncovers an individual’s unique learning profile, highlighting their strengths as well as any areas that may need closer attention. This personalized insight guides educators and therapists to be able to design a tailored educational approach to maximize an individual’s learning potential.

Improve treatment results with comprehensive care

As strengths and differences will be different for every child, testing enhances treatment outcomes by providing a comprehensive view of cognitive function. This data is highly important for empowering healthcare professionals to be able to provide precise and effective care.

Open doors to school or community support

Having the proper support is invaluable in the eyes of a patient and their family. Testing opens doors to different avenues of support within an individual’s school or community. This ensures your patient receives the accomodations and resources they need for success.
