Many factors influence brain development and functions including genetic makeup, family structure, socioeconomic well-being, and educational opportunities in addition to neurological or medical disorders. Dr. Heffelfinger hopes to get involved early in life to help the family understand how to optimize the child’s development. While basic cognitive abilities are very important, and at the core of a neuropsychological evaluation, Dr. Heffelfinger tries to also help families understand how to help their children function best at home, in school, socially, and in their community. Dr. Heffelfinger enjoys working with children starting at a young age and then helping them throughout their childhood and transitioning them into early adulthood.
