A psychological evaluation or a neuropsychological evaluation? Our appointment has been canceled and will not be reschedule... Something really bad must have happened to the doctor we were going to see. They have no clue if she will come back. In the mean time, I need to have a plan B for difficult child. I made a lot of phone calls but so far it does not look real good. All I know, difficult child needs an evaluation and the person needs to be knowlageable in autism spectrum (at least to rule it out). The behavioral and developmental pediatrician is the one that recommended the evaluation. Just to have more answers. One of the offices I called wasn't sure of the kind of testing difficult child needed and told me that the person that could help me most would be the same developmental pediatrician that requested the testing in the first place. GRRRR I'm going in circle. Not to mention that no one really knows what doctor will accept our insurance. I'm waiting for the developmental pediatrician to get back to me. Can anyone explain what the difference is between neuro and regualr psyc. evaluation? I am kind of lost and decided to pay out of pocket if it means having the best kind of testing. So far nobody seems to know what is going on. They just all agree that something is going on. It has been over 4 months of BS and we are just all so ready for help. Oh, and I was also told that both kind of evaluation could test for autism... so back to the initial question: what's the difference. Ok, I need to breath in and out really slowly and be zennnnnnnnnnnn.
