What is a Neuropsychological Evaluation

A neuropsychological evaluation is a complex process that integrates information from a wide variety of sources in order to develop a clear picture of who the person is, assess how they are functioning, and determine what may be interfering with their ability to function more effectively. A neuropsychological evaluation relies on multiple sources of data and examines cognitive abilities, brain-behavior relationships, adaptive abilities, and psychological/personality functioning.

While other tests look at other aspects of the brain (i.e., an EEG looks at electrical activity and an MRI looks at structure), this testing looks at brain-behavior relationships. We measure memory, attention and language skills, to name a few. The comprehensive nature of such an evaluation enables more accurate diagnoses, determines areas of strength and weakness, and provides relevant recommendations, such as the need for academic, psychological/psychiatric, medical, and vocational interventions.
