Neuropsychological Testing

Neuropsychological testing is a tool we use to establish diagnoses and provide an in-depth explanation of how our clients make decisions, solve problems, and cope with challenges.

We approach each client with the knowledge that all people love to learn. Our evaluations help children and adults unlock their true potential, reveal personal strengths, and develop a roadmap for the future.

Our approach to assessment is comprehensive; no person is a score, a statistic, or a type. We believe that the best way to help each client is to understand the whole person. To do that, we examine many facets of cognition and emotion, and we seek to ground our conclusions in the client’s background and experiences.

Neuropsychological testing is an investment, and we want to make sure you get the most out of this experience. Our psychologists regularly attend school meetings and consult with doctors, advocates, and educators. We will take the time to make sure you understand the results.

More About Testing

When we say that our approach is comprehensive, it means that we seek to understand the whole person in order to make the best recommendations. Rather than doing brief evaluations targeted to specific areas (reading, attention, etc.), all of our clients receive a full battery of neuropsychological testing. We believe that this is the best practice, as it helps us rule out a wide variety of potential concerns at once. Often, with brief evaluations, questions remain unanswered and families are referred for additional testing.

Our neuropsychological evaluations include testing in the following broad areas: cognitive (general ability, verbal and nonverbal skills), academic (reading, writing, and math), and neuropsychological (attention, memory, problem solving, etc.). We also offer the option of additional social-emotional testing, if there are concerns about behavior, emotional well-being, or social skills (things like depression, anxiety, and autism fall under this category).

The first step in the testing process is an intake interview. For school age children, we may do a classroom observation if indicated, and questionnaires are sent to both parents and teachers. We typically schedule 3 in-person testing sessions for each client, with session length depending on age and stamina (usually between 2 and 3 hours). Once the testing is complete, clients are given a feedback session where results are reviewed in detail. We discuss diagnoses, recommendations, and next steps so that clients have an action plan for what comes next. Finally, a formal written report is completed that describes the tests and results at length.
