If you, or your child, is struggling in their daily life and a cognitive or learning disorder is suspected, an evaluation is necessary to determine which brain functions are impacted and what systems and/or resources should be in place.

Child/Adolescent Neuropsychological & Educational Assessment
Children with undiagnosed and unmanaged problems with learning and attention face higher risks of academic difficulties and fewer life opportunities as they grow older. Obtaining an accurate diagnosis is an important first step to ensure children receive the appropriate resources at school and appropriate treatment plan with their healthcare providers.
Many adults seek neuropsychological evaluations to determine if their problems with attention, memory, emotional, or learning difficulties may stem from other psychological/neurological conditions or disorders. A full evaluation can determine if other problems are affecting thinking, attention, and reasoning abilities.
High Stakes Exams
In today’s competitive higher education environment your future depends upon your test scores. In order to be considered for additional time (or other accommodations), testing agencies require a current, comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation (sometimes called a psychoeducational evaluation or psychological testing).
A geriatric memory evaluation assesses a range of problems related to cognitive, social and emotional functioning in the older adult including memory problems, attention difficulties, capacity to make legal, financial, or medical decisions, and changes in personality. An early diagnosis has many advantages.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Testing
ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders affecting children. Diagnosis and treatment are critical to avoid decline in academic or workplace performance and to pre-empt any decline in psychological health. Lifestages provides reliable and timely ADHD evaluation and comprehensive treatment planning.
Forensic neuropsychological evaluations are similar to clinical neuropsychological evaluations, but focus on answering legal questions in context of a civil or criminal case. The neuropsychological examination may be used to assist in determining competency to stand trial, issues of responsibility for the crime, or in sentencing/mitigation in criminal litigation.
