Neuropsychological / Psychological Testing

Neuropsychological testing is a comprehensive evaluation of how one’s brain functions, which indirectly provides information about the structural and functional integrity of your brain. The neuropsychological evaluation involves a clinical interview, the administration of tests, and feedback of the results and recommendations.

Understanding how one’s brain is functioning provides important information about intellectual functioning, learning, attention, memory, personality, and mood. Testing will give a comprehensive understanding of an individual’s strengths, weaknesses, and areas of referred to as neuropsychological deficits. With this information we can make determinations about diagnostic impressions and provide customized recommendations for therapy, treatments, educational assistance, and medications.

The neuropsychologist will analyze your unique patterns of cognitive strengths and weakness in order to determine how your brain is working and better understand and explain abnormalities.

We can evaluate acquired neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders, and understand the etiology and progression of a disorder.
