Neuropsychological Testing

Does This Sound Like Your Child?

  • My child is always stressed, tantrums, or is upset after school.
  • My child is so tired after school that we can barely get anything done.
  • My child is off-track or in trouble in the classroom.
  • My child avoids or struggles with reading, writing, spelling, or math. Maybe s/he has Dyslexia?
  • My child's moods are up and down.

The Psychologists at Hope Springs Can Help.

If ANY of these sound like concerns that your family has been having, an evaiuation might help. Often, we call this type of evaluation “Neuropsychological Testing.” "Neuro" means “brain” – and that’s exactly what we’re hoping to do. We have materials that help us learn more about how a person’s brain works. Once we know that, we can tell you a little bit more about what we think is going on (diagnoses) and what we think might help!

  • I am never on time and I have difficulties managing money or keeping my home organized.
  • I often avoid reading, and have to re-read often. I'm concerned that I may have Dyslexia.

Thank you to all who participated. We are honored.

The Psychotherapists at Hope Springs Can Help.

At Hope Springs, we will work with parents and children to help.  We are warm and fun, and will get to know your child and your family.  We can teach you ways to help your child.  We work closely with parents when needed.  At other times, we may work with your child or teen to teach them ways to understand their feelings, learn who they want to be, and help them make healthy decisions for themselves.
