A neuropsychological evaluation may help if your child has:
A developmental or school problem such as a learning disability, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or autism spectrum disorder/pervasive developmental disorder.
A neurological disorder such as spina bifida, hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy, epilepsy (seizures), neurofibromatosis, tuberous sclerosis, or a brain tumor.
A brain injury from a trauma to the head, stroke, lack of oxygen, or an infection.
Other medical problems such as prematurity, diabetes, chronic heart or breathing problems, certain genetic disorders, or treatment for childhood cancer.
Been exposed to alcohol, smoking, or certain drugs prior to birth.
Had an evaluation by a psychologist or the school, but the treatment following that evaluation has not helped.
