Neurocognitive Testing

Dr. Goldberg offers comprehensive neurocognitive and educational assessments to support children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric clients in pursuit of their scholastic, occupational, or rehabilitation goals. These evaluations provide valuable information for the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions, including:

  • School-related problems
  • Academic achievement
  • Issues of focus, attention, and activity level (e.g., AD/HD)
  • Learning differences (e.g., dyslexia, dysgraphia)
  • Occupational therapy needs
  • Speech and language delays
  • Emotional issues (e.g., anxiety, depression)
  • Giftedness
  • Career counseling and occupational “fit”
  • Neurological disorders (e.g., dementia)

As School Psychologist at the Fessenden School, Dr. Goldberg has worked with hundreds of families to support requests for accommodations on standardized testing, including the ERBs, MCAS, SSAT, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, and MCAT. Given the complicated nature of neurocognitive evaluations, he provides comprehensive and comprehensible, strength-based reports that identify the “cognitive fingerprint” underlying your or your child’s learning style. Assessments are completed in a timely and professional manner and include initial interviews, record review, evaluation, written report, and 45-60 minute feedback. Dr. Goldberg will also travel to schools to discuss testing results and advocate for children’s specific needs when requested.
