Our doctors conduct evaluations with children and adolescents who have suspected learning, behavioral, and/or emotional difficulties.
Through formal testing of functional skills, such as memory and attention, we will measure your child’s brain functions. Tests are administered 1-on-1 in a quiet setting.
Comprehensive evaluations are conducted with children, adolescents, and young adults with a history of developmental difficulties and/or acquired injuries including: traumatic brain injury, learning disabilities, ADHD, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, epilepsy, brain tumors, spina bifida, and intellectual disability.
ADHD screening evaluations
Abbreviated evaluations are conducted with a specific focus on symptoms of developmental inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity.
Sports concussion evaluations
Our doctors evaluate the neuropsychological skills (i.e. memory, reaction time, and attention) of the concussed athlete. They then work closely with the treating physician or athletic trainer to determine when it's safe for the athlete to return to play.
Titrating stimulant medication
Through a collaborative relationship with prescribing physicians, titration testing helps determine the optimal dosage level, minimize potential side effects, and maximize the benefits of stimulant medications.
Classroom observations and consultations with educational professionals are arranged to assist with the development of an Individualized Educational Program (IEP).
Comprehensive evaluations are conducted to determine whether the student is eligible for accommodations and modifications in the academic setting and/or for standardized testing (i.e., SAT, ACT)
The first step in the process is a brief phone consultation and then a records review, with initial impressions and recommendations provided by Dr. Kirk to the referring attorney.
Dr. Kirk has served as an expert witness in both deposition and trial proceedings and has testified in Colorado Due Process hearings with regard to potential violations of federal education laws and eligibility for special education services for students.
What Dr. Kirk Offers
Dr. Kirk provides attorneys with comprehensive medical records review, case consultation, and/or independent neuropsychological evaluation for cases involved in litigation. He has worked extensively with both plaintiff and defense attorneys in the context of personal injury claims and medical malpractice lawsuits.
Forensic vs. Clinical
Forensic neuropsychological evaluations are different than clinical evaluations, in that they often require a more extensive records review, determination of causality, and predictions of how current injuries have implications for future functioning.
