Welcome to PACES New Mexico, LLC.  My name is Dr. Michael Neessen, I have been specializing in neuropsychological assessment for 20 years, working with children, adolescents, and young adults to help provide them with optimal learning and social success.  I am a former Harvard Faculty member and a UNM graduate.

I work collaboratively with parents, children, treatment providers, and school teams to inform how best to support an individual child or adolescent’s academic skills and social-emotional functioning.  I have evaluated thousands of children, adolescents, and young adults for issues related to:

  • Learning Strengths/Learning Profile
  • ADHD
  • Learning Disabilities/Dyslexia
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Giftedness
  • Accommodations for standardized exams (e.g., ACT, SAT, MCAT, GREs)

Please note:

  • PACES New Mexico provides evaluation services for individuals 6-22 years old (elementary school to college-age).
  • Evaluations for individuals between 18-22 are limited to questions of learning disabilities and/or ADHD only.
  • PACES New Mexico does not provide psychological evaluations solely to assess questions of mood or thought disorders.
  • PACES New Mexico does not provide therapy services for children or adults.
