The general neuropsychological orientation of the Neuropsychology Assessment Program is one of hypothesis testing. We employ a wide range of tests and neurobehavioral approaches to address specific referral questions or problems.
There is a strong emphasis on complying with consult requests quickly and efficiently by avoiding unnecessarily long examinations.
Our program uses published, brief, and repeatable tests to provide cost-effective care. Our program is capable of assessing a diverse sample of patients beginning at age five, with no upper age limit.
We provide neuropsychological evaluations to patients with the following diagnoses:
- Traumatic brain injury (mild, moderate, and severe)
- Cerebrovascular disease (e.g., stroke, aneurysm rupture)
- Dementia (e.g., Alzheimer's disease, frontal-temporal dementia, dementia with diffuse Lewy bodies)
- Demyelinating disease (e.g., multiple sclerosis), brain tumors, movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson's disease)
- Certain developmental disorders (e.g., cerebral palsy)
- Infectious diseases (e.g., HIV, meningitis)
- Toxic encephalopathies
- Brain tumors
- We also provide neuropsychological assessment to patients with many other diagnoses besides those listed above.
