Neuropsychological Assessment

A neuropsychological assessment involves a series of tests designed to measure a person’s cognitive abilities, such as attention, learning, memory, language, and problem solving.  The evaluation is conducted by a neuropsychologist – a clinical psychologist who has received additional training in the administration and interpretation of cognitive tests. The purposes of a typical evaluation are:

  1. To aid in diagnosis,

  2. To identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses so that a person can better manage their academic, occupational, or social functioning,

  3. To help your physicians and other care providers develop a more holistic understanding of who you are as a patient and a person,

  4. To measure current levels of cognitive functioning that can be used to set goals for cognitive rehabilitation of weaker cognitive abilities,

  5. To provide recommendations for improving and preserving cognitive abilities.
