Cognitive Deficits (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
If a child has or may have a genetic syndrome, a periodic evaluation with a geneticist is useful to see if new syndromes or treatments have been discovered.
If a child is diagnosed with a developmental delay as a toddler or preschooler, a cognitive assessment is important when the child reaches school age to obtain an accurate IQ score.
