Neuropsychological Evaluation and Projective Testing Services in Hingham
NESCA Evaluations Offered in Hingham:
- Neuropsychological Evaluations—help to better understand why a child, teen, or young adult may be having difficulty meeting age-appropriate demands in school, the community, or at home, or to monitor a young person’s progress and course of development. Neuropsychological evaluations provide:
- a highly-detailed description of an individual’s developmental status, thinking patterns, and learning style
- reports that are based upon a very careful integration of findings from developmental history, observations by parents, family members, teachers and clinician(s), and data from NESCA’s own testing
- Projective Testing—focuses on social-emotional development and functioning, and involves additional, specialized testing by a highly trained clinician. Projective tests are:
- performance-based tests that require the respondent to perform a task that has little structure, direction, or guidance
- helpful in understanding why a child may be experiencing emotional distress or exhibiting significant changes in behavior or social functioning
- often utilized to learn more about an individual’s mood and personality
NESCA’s Hingham clinicians specialize in middle and high school-aged children and young adults, including those who show signs of:
- An Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Being psychologically complex
- Mental health or mood disorders
- Pre-college & college coaching
- Emotional, behavioral, and attentional challenges
