Psychological, Neuropsychological and Neuropsychoeducational Evaluation
Clinical Neuropsychology is a specialty within psychology that focuses on the relationship of cognitive, psychological, emotional and behavior problems to an individual’s brain function.
Our practice conducts psychological, neuropsychological and neuropsychoeducational (psychoeducational plus) evaluations across a broad age-range, from children as young as 6-years-old up through older adulthood. Referrals for evaluation come to us from a variety of sources: concerned parents, teachers, and other school personnel; learning specialists, reading tutors, and speech therapists; treating physicians, internists and neurologists; psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health professionals; concerned spouses, adult children and other family members; employers; lawyers; and of course those referring themselves.
Neuropsychological and Neuropsychoeducational Evaluation can help provide you with many of the needed answers to the questions you may have and to others that you have not yet considered:
• How can we make school and homework a less painful experience for my child?
• Why does my child have to work many extra hours to complete the same work as his or her peers?
• Why am I – or – why is my family member of mine having such difficulty concentrating and focusing?
• Is my (memory, speed or efficiency of thought, concentration/attention ) problem getting worse?
• Is my patient’s condition improving, static, or progressively getting worse and, if so, what is the rate of the progression?
• How might my job performance be impacted by my head injury?
• What are my cognitive strengths and how can I use them to compensate better for my areas of difficulty?
• What is the best teaching approach to use with this student / my child?
• The neuroimaging results came back negative but my patient/client still is complaining of cognitive difficulties. Are the complaints reflecting a real neurological process or of some other origin?
• Did my client sustain brain impairment in their accident and, if so, of what magnitude?
• Do I or my child need accommodations (IEP/504) to achieve success at work or school?
• Am I eligible to receive accommodations for standardized testing such as the school entrance examinations, SAT, ACT, MCATs, LSATs, etc.?
