Child and Adolescent Evaluation Services

Assessment often aims to examine the child’s memory, learning abilities, information processing and language as well as helps to guide the treatment planning process.

It is recommended that children and adolescents take the ImPACT test every two years or prior to the beginning of every contact sport season to determine their premorbid baseline functioning. We also use ImPACT test as one component of the evaluative process to determine the pre- and post-injury condition of the patient, track recovery, direct return to play decisions and assist in treatment recommendations.
