Early Childhood Assessment
Do you have questions or concerns about your young child? That's typical for parents of young children. Questions arise all the time, such as:
- What is typical speech development?
- What should I do during my child's temper tantrum?
- How do I read to my child?
- What about sharing and playing with peers?
- When should I start toilet training?
We are pleased to announce that the Brenner Assessment and Consultation Center has created a program specializing in the assessment of young children. We are now accepting referrals for psychological and neuropsychological evaluations of children between two and six years of age. Here at the Brenner Center, we appreciate the individuality of each young child. Our goal is to understand each child's unique developmental and learning profile, so we can provide parents with concrete, practical, and personalized recommendations that can help optimize the child's functioning at home, at school, and in the community.
Understandably, young children can present with different developmental profiles. Here at the Brenner Center, our team is trained to answer the following questions:
Is my child developing in an age-appropriate manner? Is my child showing signs of:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Problems with sensory processing
- Developmental delays
- Effects of traumatic experiences
- Speech and language difficulties
Our team can answer these questions and recommend appropriate interventions. The Brenner Center serves clients from throughout Eastern Massachusetts.
The Brenner Center is an in-network provider for:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts
- Boston Medical Center Health Plan
- Mass Health
- Network Health
- United Behavioral Health
Our offices in West Roxbury are fully handicap accessible with ample free parking. We typically complete the assessment, written report, and verbal feedback session within 30 days of the first face-to-face interview. We have the capacity in-house to assess clients in English, Spanish and 10 other languages.
