Preparing for Your Child's Evaluation Appointment

May 11, 2023

It’s very common for kids and adults to feel a little nervous before their neuropsychological evaluation. Here are a few tips for preparing your child for the day of their evaluation:

1. There are no expectations; just do your best. We simply want to see how you think and learn best. 

2. The evaluation will be different from school: we won't just be doing reading, writing, and math, but we'll be doing some puzzles, working with blocks, and doing other fun activities. 

3. It's okay to be nervous: almost every kid is! The nerves usually go away within the first few minutes. 

4. Get a good night's sleep the night before and eat a nutritious breakfast. Take medication as you normally would.
