Neuropsychological testing is a useful tool for accurately diagnosing ADHD, learning disabilities, and assessing other cognitive problems that can result from brain injury, neurological, medical, or emotional conditions.
A neuropsychological evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of cognitive and behavioral functions using a set of standardized tests and procedures, utilizing paper and pencil, question and answer, and computer-based tests (no needless, wires or brain scans!) A broad range of functions are typically assessed, which may include the following:
Based on neuropsychological testing and evaluation results, treatment plans and recommendations can be developed to improve functioning in daily life.
CPA’s neuropsychologists all meet the highest standards of education and training in neuropsychology. These standards, created by the professional bodies in neuropsychology and the Houston Conference, call for specific knowledge of clinical neuropsychology, neuroanatomy, and brain-behavior relationships; completion of an APA-approved internship in neuropsychology; and, completion of a specialty post-doctoral residency in clinical neuropsychology. CPA only employs neuropsychologists who meet these standards.
