Preschool and School Age Children and Adolescents

Children and adolescents are frequently seen at Acorn to Oak for assessment. Testing that is typically provided for children and teens may include intelligence testing (often an entrance requirement for private education), evaluation of ADD/ADHD, evaluation of learning differences, or neuropsychological functioning such as learning style, memory, attention, processing, and coping style. Parents may also have concerns about their child’s emotional well-being and request an assessment for anxiety, depression, coping style, and resiliency.

 

Adults

Adults often present with a variety of concerns related to their cognitive functioning. Middle aged adults and older adults may have concerns about their memory, attention, or executive functioning (planning, organization, self-control). They may worry that they are developing symptoms consistent with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Acorn to Oak offers testing of intelligence, attention, memory, and executive functioning intended to provide a baseline against which to measure future performance in these domains. In this way, Acorn to Oak provides reassurance that cognitive processes are being monitored.
