Neuropsychological Evaluation

Comprehensive Neuropsychological Evaluations

A neuropsychological assessment provides an more in-depth evaluation of a person’s cognitive abilities, such as auditory/visual attention, shifting attention, working memory, visual/verbal memory, inhibition, verbal/visual problem solving, processing speed, visual processing, visuomotor coordination, while also considering the individual’s current situation and various psychological factors in play. The goal is not just to provide a diagnosis, but to provide a deep understanding of an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, which can then be used to plan specific strategies to help individuals maximize their cognitive abilities to reach their personal and occupational goals.

Diagnoses for Concerns Such as Dementias and Brain Injuries

Neuropsychological evaluations can be provided to individuals across the life span. Some common referral questions that benefit from a neuropsychological assessment includes:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Intellectual disability
  • Dementias (such as strokes or Alzheimer’s)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • and various other neurocognitive conditions.

Formal diagnoses can be provided for these conditions.

What to Expect from an Neuropsychological Assessment

A full neuropsychological evaluation takes place over several sessions and includes the following:

  • thorough interview with client
  • possible collateral interview with a close family member/friend of the patient
  • review of relevant medical records
  • 4 to 6 hours of testing
  • and a feedback session to provide and discuss the contents of the final report and recommendations.

Clients may also be asked to provide online questionnaires as needed. The final report will include relevant clinical history, test results, diagnosis, and recommendations. Length of the process usually takes about 1 month (report is usually completed about 2 weeks after the last test session).
