Neuropsychological Assessment is a testing method, which is used to acquire data about brain-behavior relationships, cognitive, motor, behavioral, linguistic, and executive functioning. The data can provide information leading to the diagnosis of cognitive deficits, organic abnormalities in the central nervous system, or brain dysfunction. This type of testing is especially helpful following an accident or injury, rehabilitation, or to support or establish neurobehavioral, neurological, medical or neurodevelopmental competencies. The areas addressed will depend upon the referral question, the patient’s complaints, symptoms or observations. Such as: difficulties reading, poor communication, head injury, learning disability, seizure disorder, autoimmune disorders, organicity, dementia, traumatic brain injury.
Neuropsychological testing is performed by a licensed professional and/or supervised intern. A report will be provided to the treatment team to assist in care management.
