Quoted From:

"In most cases, formal neuropsychological testing is the only way to understand how a child thinks and solves problems. Questioning and observing children will only result in superficial information.
A trained professional can, in real-time, assess the different aspects of intelligence, learning, memory, language, visual-spatial, executive functioning, personality, and social-emotional functioning. They can take their findings and integrate the information into a meaningful story about the child.
Neuropsychological (or Psychoeducational Testing) is an assessment that measures and identifies cognitive, motor, behavioral and linguistic impairment and functioning in children. It is a way to evaluate the structure of brain function by looking at a child's thinking skills and information processing.
A typical neuropsychological evaluation covers areas such as attention and concentration, memory and learning, language, visual-spatial skills, motor, and sensory skills, intellectual functioning, higher-level executive skills, mood, and personality.
For children and adolescents, early intervention is key. Research indicates that when kids with difficulties are identified early and provided with adequate accommodations and treatment show the greatest gains and fare the best in the long term. Formal neuropsychological testing is one of the best ways to do this."
