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. But 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.
Children with cognitive disorders often have unique behavioral difficulties. Dr Rush is an expert in helping children and their families to deal with these issues.
