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.
