Dr. Schwartz provides neuropsychological evaluations that involve the assessment of an individual’s cognitive abilities, socio-emotional and behavioral functioning, and personality. His evaluations provide an effective means to understand how someone thinks, problem solves, and learns new information, as well as how the individual processes emotions and copes with stress.  His psychological evaluations are beneficial because provide an individually-tailored intervention plan with specific recommendations (e.g., therapy, medication, etc.).

His psychoeducational evaluation includes all the components of a standard psychological evaluation (see above) but in addition includes assessment of an individual’s learning style, processing strengths and weaknesses, and academic achievement in the domains of math, reading, and written expression. A psychoeducational evaluation is necessary to diagnose specific or general learning disabilities in children. They are instrumental in helping parents and teachers understand a child's specific strengths and weaknesses.

Dr. Schwartz is available to see clients in the Marietta office.
