What Makes Us Different
When you come to New England Neuropsychology, we assume that some aspect of your or a loved one's functioning is negatively impacting quality of life, and you are looking for guidance. We want to hear your observations, concerns and hypotheses, and then will help you form specific questions that we will target during our assessment. We want to ensure that we are answering your real questions, not just ruling in/out a diagnosis. For example, we might help you to reframe the question "Does my child have ADHD" to "Why does my child have so much difficulty learning, staying still, and following directions." As opposed to others who may quickly screen for symptoms of ADHD to answer the first question, we will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to help delineate the etiology of your loved ones difficulties, which will yield more information than a simple yes/no answer. We believe that this person centered approach results in a more meaningful evaluation, and offers a deeper understanding of a patient's needs.
