Psychological & Neuropsychological Testing

In November I attended PKU Illinois' annual meeting. During the meeting, Dr. Susan Waisbren made a presentation regarding psychological & neuropsychological testing in those with PKU. I did ask her if it applied to other disorders like Propionic Acidemia and she said it did.

My daughter has her first appoinement with a child psychiatrist to discuss learning issues and her anxiety around medical procedures. We also have a domain meeting in school next week as she is having her 3 year review.

The Genetics and Metabolism Psychology Network (GMPN) lists reference articles and applicable testing in those with metabolic disorders. I found the information very helpful.
