The Center for Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Health (CNNH), headquartered in Gibbsboro, New Jersey announces the expansion of its evaluation, diagnosis and treatment services for individuals with neurological disorders and challenges, such as brain injury/concussion, autism, ADD/ADHD and more, to Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. Appointments are available commencing July 14, 2011.
Drew Nagele, PsyD, nationally recognized neuropsychologist in the field of brain injury, Founding President of the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania, and recipient of their Pioneer in Brain Injury award, recently joined the CNNH team and is launching neuropsychology services in the Bala Cynwyd location. "We are available for patients needing first-time consultation, second opinions, and, also, for collaborative consultation with a patient's established physician," explains Dr. Nagele. "As experts in how the brain functions, we often times are asked to collaborate on a piece of a larger healthcare "puzzle" which is coordinated by a patient's primary doctor or other specialist."
The CNNH interdisciplinary team of experts, including neurologists, neuropsychologists, and cognitive rehabilitation specialists utilize cutting-edge diagnostic tools, technologies and neurorehabilitation interventions to provide comprehensive diagnosis and effective treatment plans that focus on improved outcomes. Neurological and Neuropsychological Assessment, Educational Plan Development, NeuroLearning Consultation with Schools, NeuroBehavioral Services, Brain Injury Education and Counseling, Concussion Management, and Cognitive Rehabilitation services are offered for all ages.
"Our cutting-edge technologies combined with the unparalleled expertise of our clinical staff all contribute to more accurate diagnoses, resulting in more targeted treatment plans with less dependence on medication therapies," comments Mark Mintz, M.D., CNNH President and CEO. All of the diagnostic technology will soon be available in both locations.
CNNH is the only clinical center in the region providing Digital Dense Array Electroencephalography (dEEG) services for more accurate analysis of brain activity and functioning. dEEG is a non-invasive and painless way to electrically "image" the brain, determining the location of abnormal activity with greater accuracy, leading to more accurate diagnoses and treatments.
CNNH is also a provider of ImPACT testing. ImPACT is administered pre and post concussion to assist clinicians in monitoring the extent of an injury. This user-friendly computer-based neurocognitive screening program helps clinicians create a baseline for individuals at high risk for concussions and evaluate recovery following an injury.
Objective tools are used to assist in diagnosing a suspected attention deficit disorder at CNNH. " Quotient (TM) ADHD System " is a computerized diagnostic tool that measures an individual's ability to sustain attention, suppress impulsive responses and maintain normal levels of motor activity.
Once assessments are completed, plans are put into place to help individuals develop strategies for successfully integrating into their work or school setting. Patients are monitored, as needed, to make sure they are making gains and moving in a positive direction. "This immediate, intensive and responsive approach to evaluation and rehabilitation - for any neurological disorder - makes CNNH unique and helps people, young and old, transition back to work or school successfully," explains Dr. Nagele.
