Neighborhood Child Psychology
evaluations conducted by Dr. Elizabeth Hayward PhD
Dr. Elizabeth Hayward is a neuropsychologist in private practice in New York City, providing evaluations for children, adolescents, and young adults. An evaluation is necessary for many different reasons. Perhaps a doctor, teacher, school psychologist, or other professional has observed difficulties in learning, attention, behavior, or emotional control. A neuropsychological evaluation assists in better understanding a person’s memory, attention, perception, coordination, language, and social-emotional functioning. This information helps parents, teachers, therapists, and specialists provide appropriate interventions.
Dr. Hayward provides neuropsychological, psychoeducational, and autism-diagnostic evaluations for individuals age 3 and up. An evaluation will reveal learning disabilities in reading, writing, or math, as well as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Dr. Hayward is committed to comprehensive assessment, gathering information from both home and school, as well as thorough follow-through to ensure that families secure the appropriate interventions and school placement.
