An evaluation of a child’s cognitive strengths and difficulties as well as well-being
A neuropsychological evaluation has several steps:
- History taking
- Clinical observation
- Testing of cognitive strengths and difficulties
- Questionnaire use, e.g. anxiety or depression
- Interview of the child, parents, and/or teacher
- Feedback session to the child/ parent/ teacher
- A written report
Since 2002, I have conducted pediatric neuropsychological evaluation in hospital setting (Rigshospitalet), pediatric rehabiliation facility (Center for Rehabilitation of Brain Injury, Copenhagen university), for schools and municipalities (VISO).
I have a MA in Psychology from Copenhagen University, that I have supplied with a 5-year further education program that entitled me as a certified pediatric neuropsychologist. In addition, I hold a PhD from Aarhus University that focused on measurement tools.
I am or have been teaching classes at university level in Pediatric Neuropsychology (Copenhagen University, master-level students), Pediatric Diagnosis (Copenhagen University, (bachelor-level students), and Developmental Neuropsychology (Danish Institute of Studies Abroad, bachelor-level students).
