and helping your child reach his or her maximum potential academically and socially.
Where to Start:
The Thomson Memory Center can evaluate and diagnose your child with an attention disorder, such as ADHD, or a learning disability, such as a Reading Disorder, among others. Parents also seek out Thomson Memory Center's services when they are concerned about the possibility of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger's, and other general developmental disorders. Our neuropsychologists are trained in the use of the latest, proven, and clinically sound tools and methods. Information is also obtained from those who know the child best, including parents and teachers, to help develop an accurate picture of a child at home and in social and academic settings.
Our fellowship trained neuropsychologists are experts in using the best testing instruments to pin down an accurate diagnosis in order to make actionable and concrete recommendations.
What can be Done:
An appropriate diagnosis can result in school accommodations, like IEP or 504 Plans, specialized tutors, or extended test taking time, as stipulated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). His/her primary care doctor may also use the testing results to make an informed decision regarding medication administration.
Cognitive Skills Training:
Based on your child's particular functioning, a training program that utilizes thinking strengths to compensate for weaknesses and promote neuroplasticity is developed. A program typically consists of several hour-long training sessions administered once per week. Results are often noticed within the first few sessions. Your child will continue to benefit from the resources learned long after the conclusion of the sessions.
