Neurodevelopmental Testing

We provide neurodevelopmental evaluations to infants as young as 8 weeks of age. The purpose of these evaluations is to screen for potential developmental delays in the areas of receptive and expressive language, fine and gross motor skills, and visual receptive skills. Caregivers remain in the room for the duration of the brief evaluation, provide information about perinatal, developmental, and medical history, and complete questionnaires to assess their child’s socioemotional, behavioral, and adaptive functioning. Dr. Klaver will assist parents in obtaining resources and early intervention services targeted to the specific areas of need.

Appropriate reasons for referral include:

  • Suspected developmental delays in motor and language skills

  • Medical/neurologic conditions (e.g., seizure disorder, genetic conditions, craniosynostosis, prematurity, prenatal drug exposure)

  • Kindergarten readiness evaluations
