Neuropsychological assessment:

 Face-to-face, individual diagnostic procedure to determine the nature and extent of
person's cognitive deficits, as well as a profile of strengths and weaknesses.

Not intrusive and not invasive procedure performed in a private, comfortable outpatient
office   (we have 4 locations in NY metro area!).

Determines whether your cognitive abilities remain within the age norm or have declined.

Recommended when there are symptoms or complaints involving memory, thinking,
concentration, organization, reasoning, language, perception, coordination, or personality.  

Is very sensitive to mild memory and thinking problems that might not be obvious in other
ways.   When problems are very mild, neuropsychological testing may be the only way to
detect them.

Used to identify problems related to medical conditions that can affect memory and
thinking,   such as diabetes, hypertension,
head injury, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s,  
fibromyalgia, stroke,  renal disease, post-operative cognitive decline, alcoholism, etc.

Used to help differentiate among illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, dementia,
anxiety and depression.

Used to plan more effective treatment involving medicinal and non-medicinal treatment.
Test  results can be used to plan treatments that use strengths to compensate for
weaknesses. The  results help to identify what target problems to work on and which
strategies to use. For example, the results can help to plan and monitor
cognitive rehabilitation or
to follow the recovery of skills after a stroke or traumatic brain injury.

Allows to determine whether your cognitive abilities remain within the age norm or have
declined.

Especially helpful when radiological findings are negative, while you continue to
experience cognitive complaints.  

Allows you to track the effectiveness of a treatment, as well as to document permanency of
cognitive deficits secondary to a brain injury.  

Can objectively determine your current capacities. Then by comparing the pattern of these
results with your pre-injury abilities, and correlating these results with the nature of the
trauma, neuropsychologist can establish and confirm a diagnosis of
brain injury.

  Determines your cognitive strengths and weaknesses so you can improve weak cognitive
skills and leverage strong cognitive skills in order to maximize your learning potential, improve
study and test taking skills, and boost your admissions academic and IQ test scores while
applying to the
private schools or NYC gifted and talented programs.

 Takes more than 1 appointment.

Neuropsychology is a medical diagnostic study of the brain functioning. Neuropsychologists
are licensed, doctoral level psychologists with an extensive specialized training in the area
of brain structure and systems in relation to various cognitive functions.

Neuropsychologists evaluate brain functioning by objectively testing:
 General intellect
 Executive skills (reasoning, planning, etc.)
 Information processing speed and accuracy
 Attention and concentration
 Learning and memory
 Language
 Visuomotor and sensorimotor functioning
 Auditory processing
 Visual spatial processing
 Symptom exaggeration is also assessed during this exam to detect any positive or      
negative impression management.  
 Mood and personality
Our evaluations are private, discrete and thorough, and provide you
with the needed personal comfort, privacy and confidentiality you
deserve during these trying times.
