What is a
Neuropsychological Evaluation?

A neuropsychological evaluation typically involves a focused clinical interview and tests of the person's thinking abilities. It is conducted in order to describe strengths and weaknesses in a person's thinking ability, mood and behavior. It helps determine how these strengths and weaknesses may be related to a neurological or psychological problem that the person may have, such as a stroke, brain injury or illness, or other medical or psychological condition.  The evaluation helps to determine what kinds of daily tasks may be challenging for the person, what tasks they may need help with and the kinds of treatments or help that they may need to feel more comfortable and function more effectively in their daily lives.
