Neurological Disorders Testing
Neurological and genetic disorders affect a number of children and adults. Some of these conditions are identified at birth while others may go undetected for several years. However, the learning challenges often associated with these conditions often begin surfacing early on, in childhood. With neurological disorders testing, we can pinpoint the presence of neurological and genetic disorders so families can find the appropriate treatment and learning accommodations.
What Are Neurological Disorders?
Neurological disorders refer to diseases that involve the brain, spinal cord and nerves. They may be part of an individual’s genetic makeup, but can also be acquired through traumatic events, such as head injuries. Some of the most common disorders in children and adolescents are:
- Seizure Disorders
- Tourette Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Mental Retardation
- Brain Malformations
What Are Genetic Disorders?
Genetic disorders are diseases that are caused by a different form of a gene called a variation, or an alteration of a gene called a mutation. They can be inherited or can occur spontaneously within a family. Some of the most common genetic conditions to affect learning abilities include:
- Downs Syndrome
- Fragile X Syndrome
- Williams Syndrome
- Turner Syndrome
- Velocardiofacial Syndrome (VCFS)
- Prader-Willi / Angelman Syndromes
