Neuropsychological & Psychological Testing

Neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal test­ing includes a num­ber of objec­tive tests that pro­vide infor­ma­tion about one’s brain func­tion­ing. These tests explore the func­tion­ing of var­i­ous regions and func­tions of the brain con­trol­ling our behav­ior, thoughts, and emo­tions. The results of these tests pro­vide a nuanced under­stand­ing of what is going on in the brain and what that looks like in our dai­ly lives and functioning.

Neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal test­ing may be rec­om­mend­ed at any time from ear­ly to late in treat­ment to help clar­i­fy what strug­gles you may be expe­ri­enc­ing and guide treat­ment. Neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal test­ing can help to iden­ti­fy ADHD, autism spec­trum dis­or­der, demen­tia, anx­i­ety dis­or­ders, PTSD, depres­sion, TBI, learn­ing dis­or­ders and others.

Some clients may seek test­ing before begin­ning treat­ment, either ther­a­py or med­ica­tion, to get a bet­ter idea of their symp­toms and strug­gles. Oth­ers may seek test­ing after try­ing var­i­ous treat­ments and not find­ing suc­cess. We also pro­vide pre-sur­gi­cal, bariatric evaluations.

Test­ing can also sup­port indi­vid­u­als in seek­ing aca­d­e­m­ic (IEP or 504) or work accom­mo­da­tions, as it pro­vides a med­ical diag­no­sis that is often need­ed for this type of service.
