A Neuropsychological Evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of intelligence, learning, memory, language skills, problem solving, planning, attention and concentration, visual processing, and motor abilities. Emotions, behavior and personality are also assessed. Neuropsychological Evaluations are performed for children, adolescents, and adults.

In children and adolescents, evaluations also include detailed assessment of reading, writing, and math. Developmental delay, learning, attention, behavior, social skills, and emotional functioning are also examined.

Neuropsychological testing is administered to diagnose individuals who have suffered traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia (e.g., Alzheimer’s Disease), seizure disorder, exposure to toxic chemicals, chronic substance abuse, learning problems, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or other psychiatric disorders.

Neuropsychological Evaluations identify strengths and weaknesses, recommend therapeutic interventions, document changes in functioning over time, and address family or adjustment problems. Results contribute to the development of effective educational and employment programs. Neuropsychological test results are also used in disability determination and for legal purposes.
