Psychological and Psychoeducational Assessment
Newport Beach - Orange County, CA

Psychological evaluations include assessment of common disorders such as:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Autism
  • Depressive Disorders
  • Anxiety Disorders

When a child presents with various symptoms, it is often difficult to come up with an accurate diagnosis, as many childhood disorders look very similar.

There is frequently a great deal of confusion between symptoms of ADHD, learning disorders, processing disorders, and emotional disorders such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

A comprehensive psychological evaluation is an extremely valuable tool for discerning among these disorders, and preventing "mislabeling" of children.

Dr. Matusoff will provide a comprehensive report that includes:

  • Diagnostic information that can be used to determine the most appropriate resources
  • Therapeutic and treatment recommendations, as needed
  • Very specific recommendations for parents, to help a child achieve success in his or her particular area of struggle
  • Academic/educational recommendations
  • Detailed information about a child’s areas of strength and weakness
