Neuropsychological Evaluation

A neuropsychological evaluation typically begins with a comprehensive clinical interview. The information collected during the interview is used to develop a contextual understanding of the person, their history, and their current cognitive, emotional, and functional strengths and weaknesses. The clinical interview may incorporate the reports from a spouse, family members, friends, and/or educators, as well as a review of available medical, academic, and/or legal records as needed.

The clinical interview is followed by a comprehensive assessment of brain function using standardized tests. Tests may include paper and pencil, manual/visual/auditory stimuli, as well as computer-based measures of various domains of cognitive functioning as deemed clinically appropriate to the referral question. Test results are then interpreted in the context of a person’s clinical history and current functioning to inform clinically indicated diagnoses and treatment recommendations.
