How Neuropsychological Testing Works
Neuropsychological assessment involves the use of cognitive and psychological tests. The cognitive tests measure specific aspects of brain functioning, such as attention, memory, and executive functioning. The tests that we use have been extensively researched and have demonstrated that they are valid and reliable tools.
The assessment process usually entails meeting for a clinical interview followed by the administration of a test battery, which might include face-to-face, paper-and-pencil, and/or computer-based tests. We might also ask to review relevant records or request to speak with people who can provide additional information. After reviewing all data, a comprehensive report is written, and a feedback session is provided to the client.
Our neuropsychology services are designed to increase your understanding of cognitive and psychological problems and make appropriate recommendations. The assessment findings are used to answer questions, address areas of concern, and assist with diagnosis and treatment planning.
