 Neuropsychological Testing and Assessment

Neuropsychological tests offer an estimate of a person’s peak level of cognitive performance.  Aspects of cognitive functioning that are assessed typically include orientation, new-learning/memory, intelligence, language, visuoperception, and executive-functioning. However, clinical neuropsychological assessments are more than this, they also focus on a person’s psychological, personal, interpersonal and wider contextual circumstances. These evaluations assist in understanding the pattern of cognitive strengths as well as any difficulties a person may have, and aid in decision making for use in a medical or rehabilitation environment.

 

The Goals of Neuropsychological Testing & Assessment:

To clarify a diagnosis and to determine the nature of the underlying problem.

To understand the nature of any brain injury or resulting cognitive problem and its impact on the individual, as a means of devising a rehabilitation program or offering advice as to an individual’s ability to carry out certain tasks.

Assessments may be undertaken to measure change in functioning over time, such as to determine the consequences of a surgical procedure or the impact of a rehabilitation program over time.
