Dr. Newsom focuses exclusively on psychological assessments. His specialties include assessment of Autism, ADHD, Learning Disorders like Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia and other Neurodevelopmental disorders in adults, adolescents and children. He also evaluates the full range of psychiatric disorders. Dr. Newsom uses a combination of assessment techniques that include screening, detailed background, collateral interviews, clinical interviews, objective questionnaires, neuropsychological, psychoeducational and performance-based testing. His assessments are comprehensive, independent and client-focused.
Client-Centered Assessments are used for diagnosis, therapeutic interventions, accommodations in school, standardized testing and on the workplace. In schools they support the "504" process, curriculum modifications, special educational services, IEPs, and Tutoring. If your child struggles, see me to be sure they get the education and services they need.
We always work collaboratively to reach your goals. Once testing is complete, clients come in for a full feedback session where results are presented. The discussion around the results is an important part of the assessment and a final report is written only after you are fully informed. Since the assessment in independent, you control who sees the results.
