What is a Neuropsychological Evaluation?
Who may benefit from a Neuropsychological Evaluation?
Neuropsychologists are specially trained to administer and interpret the results of structured tests
that allow for the understanding of how brain functioning influences behavior and emotions. Testing
can be completed on individuals experiencing problems from preschool through adulthood. Evaluations
are tailored to the individual and may include the assessment of intellectual functioning, language,
visual-perception, attention and memory, executive functions (organization, planning, speed of
processing), academic skills, sensory perception, motor coordination, and/or social-emotional or
personality functioning. Assessments are comprehensive and, thus, allow for more thorough
recommendations to doctors, schools, and/or employers.
