A Neuropsychological Evaluation is a combination of interviews and testing. The interviews are designed to give our neuropsychologists information about you that will be helpful in forming a diagnosis. For example, you’ll be asked about your symptoms, medical history, medications and other important factors.
Testing may include paper-and-pencil tests, computerized tests, or simply answering questions. The number and variety of tests required, as well as the time needed to complete them, will depend on the condition being assessed. Some tests may be easy, while others are more complex. Most patients find that the tests are interesting and even enjoyable. If you use glasses or a hearing aid, they should be worn when you take the tests. It’s important that you do your best, because the information gathered will play a key role in formulating your plan of care.
