Miriam Joseph, Ph.D.
There are many developmental, medical, and psychological conditions that can impact an individual’s cognitive, behavioral, and emotional functioning. My goal is to assist in the accurate diagnosis of these conditions and develop detailed recommendations in order to optimize functioning, improve independence, quality of life, and overall well-being.
I offer comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for children. A neuropsychological assessment typically includes intelligence and achievement testing, personality, and cognitive functioning including attention, memory, language, executive functioning visual spatial ability, and motor functioning. My aim is to understand the barriers that impact a child’s developmental, intellectual, and/or learning ability and offer solutions so children can function to their true potential.
My approach is to review records and obtain a detailed history in conjunction with testing to provide a holistic assessment of an individual in a warm and empathic environment
