Purpose of Neuropsychological Evaluation

Neuropsychological evaluations provide detailed information about an individual’s cognitive functioning, helping to guide recommendations and strategies for improving daily functioning at home, work, school, and in the community. These evaluations are beneficial for individuals with known or suspected brain dysfunction, assisting in diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring cognitive changes over time.

Who Benefits from Evaluation?

Individuals experiencing cognitive changes due to traumatic brain injury, neurodegenerative disorders, or other medical conditions can benefit from neuropsychological evaluation. Students struggling with attention, learning, or emotional issues in school can also benefit, as evaluations help clarify underlying difficulties and inform academic accommodations.

Duration and Preparation

A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation typically involves three appointments, including an initial interview, testing session, and feedback appointment. Patients should prepare by eating before the appointment, bringing medications list, and arriving on time. Testing sessions may last several hours, so patients are advised to bring snacks and any necessary aids (e.g., glasses, hearing aids).

Evaluation Process

The evaluation includes a clinical interview to understand the patient’s history and difficulties, followed by a testing session to assess various cognitive functions. Results are summarized in a report sent to the referring physician and provided to the patient.

The Neuropsychology Department at Neuro Foundation offers specialized assessment and treatment services for individuals with cognitive and neuropsychiatric conditions. Our experienced team provides comprehensive evaluations tailored to patients’ needs, helping to improve understanding, diagnosis, and management of neurological disorders.
