We do neuropsychological testing in children covering a range of abilities including overall cognitive functioning, attention, working memory, visual spatial processing, learning, reasoning, language, executive functioning, behaviour and academic achievement. Some of the tests we use include; the Test of Variables of Attention, the Mullen Scales of Early Learning, the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, and the Behavioral Rating Inventory of Executive Functions.
We do neuroimaging using an XLTEK EEG machine to monitor seizures in our research participants. We also do retinal imaging of the brain by indirect ophthalmoscope examination.
