A careful evaluation of attachment disorder symptoms is the first step on your path forward.

In your attachment assessment at the NeuroDevelopment Center, we will work carefully with you and take the time needed to evaluate your child’s attachment behavior and emotional responses, and understand any attachment disorder symptoms. We will also work with you to determine the solutions that are best for you and your family. What matters most is that you understand the problem fully. That you know what to do to make things better. That you are confident that our treatment plan is the right one for you and your family.

Diagnostic evaluation

For some, a careful diagnostic evaluation is just what is needed. This will involve:

  • a thorough interview with parents
  • a child visit
  • specialized measures of social, emotional, and behavioral symptoms and attachment disorder symptoms
  • a prompt, jargon-free report written so you understand
  • recommendations for practical steps you can take to move forward toward lasting change

Neuropsychological assessment

If your child’s situation is more complex, if you are concerned about thinking processes and learning, a full neuropsychological assessment may be needed, in addition to assessment of specific attachment disorder symptoms. We will use many different tests to look carefully at:

  • Intelligence
  • language
  • perceptual and visual-spatial abilities
  • speed of processing
  • memory
  • learning
  • attention
  • problem solving
  • conceptualization<
  • planning and organization
  • mental flexibility
  • motor skills
  • academic abilities
  • emotional  and social functioning
