What is NeuropsychologICAL Assessment?
Neuropsychological assessment involves a systematic evaluation of cognitive abilities, such as intelligence, academic skill, memory, language, attention, problem solving abilities and visual-motor skills as well as sensorimotor function and personality. The results of neuropsychological assessment can assist physicians, family members, caregivers, and schools in making decisions about the person’s treatment options, rehabilitation potential, capacity, school placements or interventions and other issues.
A comprehensive report summarizing our findings, including recommendations for potential treatments and the likely consequences of the patient’s difficulties in daily functioning, is prepared for the referring physician or other clinician. A feedback session with the patient and family can also be provided.
