A neuropsychological evaluation is a psychological assessment of brain function, cognitive processes, and behaviors. This involves an interview with a clinician, as well as some standardized assessments. The goal is to determine a pattern of cognitive strengths and limitations in order to understand more about how your brain is functioning. These tests are applicable to people of all ages, and they can cover things like intelligence, motor functions, sensory processing, executive functioning, memory, and language processing, to help us help you.
A key part of this process is finding the right provider. Our diverse team includes psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and nurse practitioners in Needham and Norwell.
