The Neuropsychological Evaluation

The neuropsychological evaluation provides a clear and objective understanding of the brain mechanisms responsible for problems with thinking, learning, emotions, and behavior. This information is then used to develop an effective treatment plan, which is a set of specific strategies for overcoming challenges and achieving one's goals.

The neuropsychological evaluation consists of a diagnostic interview to review the clinical and developmental history, extensive testing in an individual one-to-one setting, and a feedback session to review the results and discuss the treatment plan. It is far more comprehensive than a psychoeducational evaluation, where the focus is primarily on academic skills.

The neuropsychological evaluation measures a broad spectrum of cognitive abilities, as well as mood and personality traits. It is designed to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of systems in the brain that control various aspects of thinking and behavior. This profile can accurately diagnose learning disabilities, ADHD, processing problems, behavioral disorders, and emotional disturbances.
