A neuropsychological evaluation is a comprehensive method of assessing brain function by examining a person’s thinking skills and information processing. The evaluation consists of an oral interview and a series of tests, which are paper-and-pencil or computer administered measures of cognitive functioning (attention, memory, perception, and problem-solving).
Children may be referred because of behavioral issues, developmental problems, educational issues, illness, or injury. The issues may be in the home environment, their progress in school, or their peer relationships. Conditions such as ADHD, learning disabilities, or autistic spectrum disorders are common reasons for evaluation.

Adults may be referred for such problems as memory loss, decline in performance on the job, or personality change. Medical patients may need testing to help plan treatment after a brain injury or a stroke. Testing is also used in the evaluation of Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of dementia.

The types of behaviors that might indicate the need for evaluation or treatment include:
  • Memory loss
  • Attention and concentration problems
  • Difficulty organizing and planning
  • Difficulty communicating
  • Changes in spatial skills
  • Difficulty writing or reading
  • Disturbed thinking or confusion
The less aware we are of our thoughts, feelings, motives, and behaviors, the more they control us. Psychotherapy helps clients understand their “stories”; the experiences that shaped them, the defenses that have helped protect them and the patterns or habits that are now preventing them from living a satisfying life. Psychotherapy is a dialogue between the therapist and the client that aims to eliminate negative symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and help the client to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
