"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Neuropsychological and psychological assessment are processes that involve the use of an extensive interview, observations, and a variety of standardized tests, which answer a set of questions about how a person is functioning cognitively and/or emotionally. Neuropsychological and psychological assessment can answer a number of questions related to memory and other cognitive symptoms related to:
- ADHD and Learning Disabilities
- Movement Disorders (i.e., Parkinson’s Disease)
- Other neurological and medical conditions (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis)
Psychological and neuropsychological assessment can vary in time, depending on the purpose of the evaluation, but usually takes between 2-9 hours of face to face time. My job is to compile all of the information I’ve gathered, from reviewing records, interviews, observations, and standardized tests and use it to answer the initial referral question. I generate a written report, complete with a summary of current level of functioning and appropriate recommendations. In addition, I always provided in-person feedback to my clients, and participate in treatment planning and collaboration with other treating professionals.
