Neuropsychological assessment

Neuropsychological counseling is aimed at drafting a diagnostic-functional profile of the child with visual impairment by integrating various areas (perceptual, cognitive, linguistic, sensory-motor etc.), and taking into account adaptive behaviors and individual variabilities. The psychologist performs a careful and participatory observation, empathic listening to the child’s needs, validated tests, a comprehensive anamnesis and interview with parents, as well as a study of clinical and school records.

The goal is to be able to identify each child’s strengths and weaknesses in order to propose activities aimed at encouraging the full use of their resources which will support them with their difficulties and accompany them toward a gradual and growing awareness of their visual impairment.
