Frequently Asked Questions
Who might benefit from a neuropsychological evaluation?
Neuropsychological evaluations can help evaluate children who may be experiencing difficulties with learning, attention, memory, behavior, or emotions. Currently, Bend Health can test children between the ages of 5 and 17.
For those unsure about whether to proceed with testing, at the Behavioral History Evaluation appointment, the practitioner will carefully consider the child's age, developmental level, and individual needs and share a recommendation about whether testing is appropriate.
What conditions does neuropsychological testing identify?
Conditions that may be diagnosed through neuropsychological evaluation include learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injury, and emotional or behavioral disorders.
Who conducts a neuropsychological evaluation?
The Bend Health team includes a team of professionals who work together to evaluate your child thoroughly.This includes psychometrists, licensed behavioral health practitioners, psychologists, neuropsychologists, and psychiatrists.
What will my child be asked to do during the testing?
Your child will be tested using different techniques one-on-one with a provider. Depending on your child's specific needs, the testing may include puzzles to solve, game-like activities, computer tasks, question-answer tasks, and paper-pencil tasks.
How long does testing take?
At Bend Health, neuropsychological testing is completed in two to three sessions of two to four hours each. The ultimate schedule for your child’s testing will be based on your specific needs and circumstances.
Completing testing across several shorter sessions - instead of in a single full-day session - ensures your child is fully engaged. We want to meet your child at their best, to understand both where their strengths lie, and areas where they might need more support. The best way to do this is to ensure your child is fresh and rested.
How long will it take to receive my report?
The turnaround time to receive your report is approximately two to four weeks after the first testing session. However, there are a number of factors that can impact the report completion, including receiving timely paperwork from previous evaluations and school.
Will someone help me understand the results of the assessment?
Yes. Once the report is complete, we will schedule a feedback session to review the evaluation results and help you understand the recommendations. In some circumstances, the assessment team can also be involved in future IEP meetings to discuss the results.
How much does a neuropsychological evaluation cost?
At Bend Health, testing is offered at a flat rate of $3,000. This includes the final report, a live feedback session, and coordination with your child’s school (if applicable).
At this time, Bend only accepts United Healthcare insurance plans for neuropsychological testing. For other insurance plans, Bend can offer a superbill so you can submit for reimbursement as allowed by your plan. The superbill will be provided after testing is complete, and you will need to pay all testing fees upfront.
Additionally, the first appointment that begins the testing process includes a $50 fee. This fee is non-refundable and not eligible for insurance reimbursement. However, it does contribute toward the total $3,000 cost of testing for members paying out of pocket.
How does virtual testing compare to in-person testing?
It may be hard to imagine how such an in-depth evaluation could be done remotely; however, many of the validated tests and assessments have been validated and approved to be used remotely. In some cases, virtual testing is actually preferable because kids can complete testing from an environment they are comfortable in, and testing can more easily be scheduled over several days.
The Bend Health approach includes a series of tests and measures validated for a virtual testing environment. We aim to provide the same gold-standard experience you would experience in a traditional in-person setting.
Can neuropsychological testing support getting an IEP or other accommodations at school?
This is one of the most common reasons parents and caregivers seek neuropsychological assessments. Many school systems require a definite diagnosis to approve accommodations like those defined in an IEP. Many factors influence the outcome of the evaluation, and it’s important to understand that every child tested does not necessarily receive a diagnosis.
Regardless of whether there is a diagnosis, we will provide a list of recommendations and information to help your child reach their full potential at home and in school. Additionally, please be aware that each school has its own specific guidelines and cutoff points for allowing accommodations or IEP approval.
