Neuropsychologists assess cognitive dysfunction in patients with a variety of neurological disorders, including disorders that may mimic or prolong recovery from a concussion.

Neuropsychology is a branch of clinical psychology that focuses on the relationship between underlying brain function and behavior.

Our neuropsychologists assess cognitive abilities through objective testing, and evaluate for any factors that could affect brain health, including prior concussions, medical history, medication use, sleep habits, and lifestyle. Neuropsychological testing measures all domains of thinking and cognition including attention, processing speed, language, memory, and reasoning.

The results of neuropsychological testing give neuropsychologists insight into brain-behavior relationships, which allows them to tailor recommendations to the patient and the treatment team. Neuropsychologists provide education into your cognitive strengths and weaknesses, recommendations for work and school modifications, and can make referrals to specific therapies such as specialized rehabilitation, support groups, or other behavioral health treatments. In some cases, Section 504 plans or IEPs may be recommended for school reintegration. Neuropsychologists develop a plan to help you return to your daily cognitive activities in school, work, and life.

In addition to concussion assessments, our neuropsychologists evaluate patients with:

  • Memory Loss and Dementia
  • Neurologic Disorders
  • Psychiatric Disorders
  • ADHD / Learning Disability
