Neuropsychology is the study of brain functions in relation to expressed behavior and emotional state. A neuropsychological evaluation is conducted to assess current cognitive functions such as attention and concentration, language skills, executive functions (decision making abilities, multitasking, planning, organizing skills, etc.), verbal and visual memory, and other cognitive domains in relation to an expressed behavior pattern.
Why a neuropsychological evaluation?
If you are suffering from a head injury or concussion, learning problems, depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, or you are undergoing a neurodegenerative disease processes such as Alzheimer’s for example, you are no longer functioning at an optimal level. In order to help alleviate the distressing symptoms or rebuild your cognitive processes we need to establish a baseline or starting point. The baseline data from the assessment is analyzed and a treatment plan is generated that addresses the specific problem areas so that we can help you get better faster.
