Neuropsychological Evaluation

Neuropsychological evaluation provides an in-depth evaluation of brain functioning to identify and describe abilities and deficits.  The neuropsychological evaluation assesses the cognitive capabilities and limitations of the individual.  This evaluation is particularly important in determining treatment programs for persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) since it is one of the most effective methods to determine the nature and implications of TBI and its consequences.

Neuropsychological assessment involves the evaluation of cognitive abilities using a series of standardized assessment measures.  These evaluations are used to help diagnose and identify problems of attention, concentration, learning and memory.  These evaluations may also assess intellectual abilities, language functions, visual spatial skills as well as executive functioning which involves planning and organization.  The results of these evaluations can confirm diagnoses of brain injury, document changes in functioning and develop a profile of strengths and weaknesses to enable more effective treatment planning.  Neuropsychological evaluations also provide information which is useful in developing appropriate compensatory strategies.

Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that evaluates how the brain affects daily functioning.  Clinical neuropsychology makes use of a variety of assessment methods to determine function and dysfunction and applies this knowledge to evaluate, treat and rehabilitate patients with suspected or demonstrated neuropsychological problems including TBI and Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS).
