Comprehensive Neuropsychological Testing
Neuropsychological testing offers a comprehensive picture of the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning of an individual. It differs from standard psychological testing because it considers both the strengths and weaknesses of the client and identifies brain regions implicated in the resulting pattern of deficits. This information helps to clarify the diagnostic picture, prognosis, and treatment implications for people experiencing a wide variety of conditions.
This in-depth testing process is particularly useful in cases where previous testing and / or treatment has not helped to improve symptoms. It can address academic, occupational, emotional, and behavioral problems. Although we can generally offer these services to both adults and children, we specialize in pediatrics. Neuropsychological testing can be particularly helpful and important for children, because accurate diagnosis allows for early treatment and remediation, allowing for the best possible lifetime prognosis.
