Children with medical conditions such as traumatic brain injuries, concussions, autism, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, and many others, can have difficulty learning. In order to design the best education plan for each individual child it is often necessary to test dozens of different aspects of thinking and learning. Dr Rush is an expert in helping children and their families to assess and deal with those issues.
Children with cognitive disorders often have unique behavioral difficulties. Children are not little adults and cannot be expected just to sit still and take tests. Dr Rush has a great deal of experience in specifically working with children to get the most accurate assessment of their abilities.
Many children also have difficulty with speech and language. As the only Pediatric Neuropsychologist in Michigan who holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology, Dr Rush is uniquely able to assess your child's needs.
The evaluation is a comprehensive assessment for complex medical, cognitive, developmental, behavioral, language, psychosocial-emotional, and/or learning concerns to identify or clarify appropriate diagnoses and to provide recommendations for other medical providers as well as for school and home. Most importantly, to allow an in-depth understanding of your child’s strengths and weaknesses help them meet their potential.
