With the information obtained from testing, recommendations can be made for optimizing a child’s neurodevelopmental progression. An NDC assessment is key to developing an appropriate therapeutic program and identifying the trained professionals who are needed to implement that program. In addition, a variety of strategies and, in consultation with medical professionals, pharmaceutical interventions may be implemented to optimize a child’s development and promote recovery.


NDC’s testing is premised on the belief that each neurodevelopmental disorder and learning disability has a characteristic neurobehavioral profile. By understanding the profile, the appropriate services can be implemented at the optimum time and for an adequate length of time. This is a cost-efficient way of helping a child who has learning differences and neurodevelopmental disabilities.

Neuromotor: Upper and lower extremity function
Neurocognitive: Learning, cognitive skills, and educational potential
Speech and Language: Receptive, expressive, and oral-motor skills
​Neurobehavioral: Attention, organization, activity and control
An NDC assessment is a comprehensive measure of a child’s developmental domains, and the NDC staff works individually with a child to evaluate:
Look at the child's learning style, neurocognitive ability
​and developmental differences.
Evaluate neurodevelopmental performance.
Assess the integrity of motor function.
Recognize unique learning styles.
​Navigate the medical and educational systems.

Assessments

at the Neurodevelopmental Diagnostic Center for Children

A neurodevelopmental assessment helps identify the causes of a child's developmental delays and learning disabilities by evaluating the interaction between a child's brain, environment and learning function. By evaluating a child's abilities and unique learning style, NDC can assist in determining what therapeutic, medical and educational services are needed for a child to reach his or her full potential for success—in school and in life.

Dr. Carole Samango-Sprouse, the founder and director of NDC, is uniquely skilled at connecting a child’s "developmental dots." Through more than two decades of training and experience, Dr. Carole Samango-Sprouse can see what a child's challenges are and how they can be overcome.

"We're devils for the details at NDC and we see the behaviors and developmental differences others overlook. I understand where the children who see me are, and my experience gives me insight into where they should be in 20 years—and how to get them there. I know how smart and capable children can be despite their developmental differences."
