Neuropsychological/Comprehensive Evaluations

Neuropsychological evaluations use a series of tests to assess various areas of cognition and behavior. These areas include memory, attention, learning, processing speed, and abstract reasoning. This information is processed to provide information regarding the impact of any identified areas of difficulty on a person's everyday functioning.


Included in an evaluation (of a child, for example) is a detailed investigation of the child's developmental, medical, social, and psychological history. This is in addition to an extensive testing battery that examines intellectual, academic, attention, executive functioning, language, visuospatial, visuoconstructional, memory, and fine motor skills.

The results of a neuropsychological assessment are intended to identify not merely any intellectual or learning difficulties, but also any other cognitive or psychological difficulty that may be a contributing to an adolescent’s profile.

Our Psychologists use neuropsychological evaluations to provide patients with the most comprehensive assessments possible, forging the path to a treatment plan tailored to and crafted specifically for each patient.
