Jimmy’s Story*

Jimmy
Jimmy1

Jimmy came to us as a 10-year-old who had been diagnosed with four different mental health disorders – ADHD, disruptive mood dysregulation disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and depression – prior to coming to our clinic.

Despite having struggled with these many issues throughout his life, he was a bright and pleasant boy. However, the medications the doctors had prescribed in an attempt address his significant outbursts were simply not working.

During our evaluation with Jimmy, we found that his correct diagnosis was autism spectrum disorder. It was one diagnosis that covered ALL of his symptoms. I sat down with Jimmy’s parents to discuss the results, and the stories they told me about Jimmy’s behaviors were very consistent with what we had found during testing.
Several months later, I spoke with Jimmy’s parents. They both expressed gratitude for the evaluation we had performed which had been helpful for their family. Jimmy’s mom said they had been having these issues since Jimmy was two years old but that now they better understood how to help him.
They said that because they had an accurate diagnosis, Jimmy was now on the right medications. They described how this had really helped him to be more successful. While he had not yet begun to receive our recommended services, they would be starting soon.

Why Neuropsychological Testing?

Parents and adults frequently call our office to better understand what neuropsychological testing is. The purpose of neuropsychological testing is to obtain a well-rounded picture of your cognitive (your thinking) strengths and weaknesses. This clear understanding can help steer treatment in the right direction.

Why Test?

It might be time to test for a wide variety of reasons.
Have you noticed your child struggling in school with academic difficulties, inattention, behavioral problems, or thinking/memory problems resulting from a medical condition? Are you concerned they may have ADHD or Autism?

Neuropsychological testing can be helpful if you or your child has suffered from traumatic brain injury or concussion; or struggle with moderate to severe mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Adults often contact us because they are struggling with focus and concentration, learning, and memory. Do you have an older loved one experiencing forgetfulness or thinking problems and are concerned about dementia?

What Does it Involve?

A Neuropsychological Testing Testimonial

“Dr. Bonack is very warm and caring. She takes real pride in the work that she does. My daughter has a Neurocognitive disorder that Dr. Bonack diagnosed, after we had gone down many different avenues to get some answers.
Out of all of the doctors and testing we had done for our daughter, Dr. Bonack gave us the starting point we’ve been looking for. She continues to keep in touch and is genuinely concerned about her patients. She has offered to help us find additional resources for our daughter. I would recommend Neuro Hope and Dr. Bonack to anyone looking for answers and help in the right direction.”
“Thank you, Dr. Bonack! I can’t thank you enough for truly caring about our daughter and us.” ~ Kisha
