Care and Treatment

What Happens During a Neuropsychology Assessment?

The evaluation involves clinical interviews with the patient and a family member, when possible, to understand the patient's history and how cognitive and emotional changes have affected his or her life. The interview can take up to an hour. The patient then completes neuropsychological testing.

Neuropsychological testing involves:

  • A non-invasive process using a variety of written and verbal tasks that are completed while seated at a table
  • The testing is performed by a neuropsychologist and a specialty trained psychometrist.
  • The total time of the evaluation depends on the referral question; the testing is usually completed in one visit and the time for the evaluation usually ranges from 4-7 hours.

For Patients

Please discuss your concerns with your health care practitioner. A referral directly from your health care practitioner can facilitate the referral process, including authorization for health care insurance coverage.

If you have had prior neuropsychological, psychological, or educational testing, please arrange to have those records sent to us for review prior to your appointment.
