Why choose Golden Vibes?

There are very few individuals outside the field of neuropsychology who perform evaluations for children, adolescents and young adults in Dane County. As a result, there were over 600 children on the waitlist for a pediatric neuropsychological evaluation at UW-Hospital in the Spring of 2019, the majority of whom do not need that level of assessment. Our staff has over ten years experience providing assessments and evaluations to a variety of individuals, and expert knowledge regarding educational law, eligibility for specialized services, and accommodations appropriate for the academic setting.
