What is a neuropsychological evaluation?

The goal of testing is to measure how the individual performs relative to other individuals of their age and education. The procedure involves three separate clinic visits: a comprehensive clinical interview with individual and family member; formal objective testing; and a result interpretation/feedback session. Final reports are provided and outline the individual’s background, test findings, diagnosis, and specific recommendations. Overall conceptualization is provided and based on the individual’s unique profile.
