Assessment

The primary focus of my practice is neuropsychological assessment.  A neuropsychological evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of cognitive and behavioral functions using a set of standardized tests and procedures. Various mental functions are systematically tested, including, but not limited to:

  • Intelligence
  • Problem solving and conceptualization
  • Planning and organization
  • Attention, memory, and learning
  • Language
  • Academic skills
  • Perceptual and motor abilities
  • Emotions, behavior, and personality

A neuropsychological evaluation is recommended for any case in which brain-based impairment in cognitive function or behavior is suspected. Typical referrals are made to diagnose or rule out the following conditions and to describe their impact on a person's cognitive functioning and day-to-day life:

  • Concussion / Traumatic brain injuries
  • Strokes
  • Developmental and learning disabilities
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Psychiatric or neuropsychiatric disorders, including PTSD
  • Seizure disorders
  • Medical illness or treatments
  • Effects of toxic chemicals or chronic substance abuse
  • Dementing conditions (e.g., Alzheimer's Disease)

Neuropsychological evaluation can assist greatly in planning educational and vocational programs. It can also be invaluable for disability determination or for forensic (legal) purposes to determine the nature and extent of functional brain damage.  Testing can also be useful in determining whether or not a person is fit for returning to work, what potential problems may arise, and what types of accommodations would maximize success.  My expertise in rehabilitation psychology differentiates me from other neuropsychologists in that in addition to conducting a comprehensive evaluation I have the rehabilitation skills to develop a plan to optimize recovery and ongoing participation.


Consultation Services

In addition to assessment, I can provide consultation services for individuals or organizations.  This can include testing, supervision, training and seminars on a range of topics, forensic (IME and capacity) evaluations, document reviews, and other services.  I regularly present on topics in both local and national forums.  Contact me to discuss what I can do for you.
