Diagnosis

Neuropsychological assessment works to create a profile of an individual’s strengths and weaknesses by gathering various forms of information: Assessment data; spouse, parent, teacher, and physician information; medical and psychiatric history, as well as clinical observations. During the assessment some of the following areas of functioning may be addressed:

​• Intelligence, reasoning, and higher-order cognitive abilities

• Motor functioning & visuospatial abilities

• Social and adaptive skills

• Language

• Memory

• Attention and regulation of behavior

• Organization and planning skills​

The tests are noninvasive and differ from brain imaging techniques such as computerized axial tomography (CAT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in that they require the individual to actually use his or her brain on a variety of tasks to see how the brain is functioning in real time.

Personality is also assessed, along with an evaluation of psychosocial stressors at work, home, and school.  A comprehensive neuropsychological assessment often requires several hours that may span more than one day. Appointments may be scheduled to accommodate work and school schedules.

Neuropsychological Report

The scope of the evaluation is determined during the clinical interview.  An evaluation may address a specific need requested by your primary care provider; by a hospital, school, or clinic; or other health care provider. Evaluations are frequently tailored to meet the following kinds of requirements:

​• Educational transitions (e.g., from 4th to 5th grade)

• Accommodations for Clinical Board Certifications/Bar testing for law license, college & graduate level entrance examinations such as the SAT, LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, and the like

• Diagnostic testing for brain injury, tumors, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, dementia. ADHD, LD, autistic spectrum disorders or other neurological disorders

• School readiness evaluations

• Gifted testing

• Disability evaluations, medical evaluations, mental status evaluations

Treatment

Treatment recommendations might include cognitive-behavioral therapy to address issues of anxiety or depression, behavior therapy for selective sound sensitivity, neurocognitive rehabilitation to address memory or cognitive/reasoning abilities, lifestyle changes, and the like.  You may be also referred to an outside health care provider more appropriate for your treatment (e.g., dialectical behavior therapist, psychoanalyst, cognitive-behavioral therapist, couples therapist or a psychiatrist for psychiatric medication)
