What is Neuropsychology?
Neuropsychology is the field of understanding and addressing the relationship between the brain and an individual’s behavior.
It is influenced by clinical psychology, cognitive psychology, neuroanatomy, and neuropathology, among other disciplines.
Most neuropsychologists are first trained as clinical psychologists, and then receive additional training, through coursework, practical training, and post-doctoral fellowships in neuropsychology or rehabilitation psychology.
Why Neuropsychological Assessment Is Important
Neuropsychological Evaluation provides an understanding of how behavior and thinking are influenced by brain functioning, including intellectual abilities, memory, language, and motor skills. This specialized assessment provides a profile of an individual’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, which allows for a better understanding of how symptoms and concerns are caused and expressed. Assessments are customized to meet individual needs.
Our services assist in creating treatment plans, formulating goals for Individualized Education Plans (IEP) and for monitoring the benefit of interventions.
