Neuropsychological assessment is conducted by the Neuropsychologist and / or a trained psychometrician.  Testing is typically done a few months following the incident.  The length of the testing depends of the diagnosis and specific patient needs.  Testing can take from one to eight hours.  Longer testing sessions can be divided into two appointments if needed.  The activities in the test vary.  Some are verbal, some written, and some involve hands-on activities.  The test will begin at an easy level and progressively become more difficult.  Tools used can assess attention concentration, learning, memory, motor, language, and sensory functions as well as measure I.Q. and academic achievement.  We also do testing for special students (IQ Testing, Special Education, Advanced Placement, Excelled Learners).
