Why Choose Baker Neuropsychology?
The specializations of Dr. Baker and his staff allow for the comprehensive examination of children, adolescence, and adults. This includes assessing clients holistically from many perspectives, including cognitive, academic, emotional/behavioral, and social/interpersonal perspectives, as well as adaptive and executive functioning. We typically spend 15-20 hours of total time on each evaluation. We develop extensive and carefully tailored recommendations pertaining to the school so clients (including children/adolescents) receive the accommodations and special services (e.g., reading interventions) they need. Aside from comprehensive testing, we conduct extensive interviewing (2-2.5 hours) of parents, children, and sometimes teachers. Our reports are lengthy (typically 20+ pages) and provide extensive information about the results and appropriate accommodations and interventions, all of which are explained to parents in a comprehensive feedback session that lasts approximately 2 hours. After the parent feedback session, children are seen for a feedback session that typically lasts about an hour.
Over 50% of our child referrals are from the parents of children we previously evaluated. Also, parents often ask us to evaluate other children in the family following the evaluation of the first child (which we discount). We aim to provide assessments of the highest quality, which has resulted in the numerous referrals we receive. Although this occasionally results in lengthier wait times to be seen for an appointment, we are typically able to see newly referred children within 2-3 weeks of making the appointment.
One major advantage to having us perform a neuropsychological, psychoeducational, or psychological evaluation, is the ability to add a qEEG/brain mapping assessment to the evaluation, as this provides valuable information about the potential underlying factors contributing to the child’s issues.
