Psychological & Neuropsychological Consultation Services
The department’s psychological assessment service provides a full range of psychological and neuropsychological evaluation and consultation services. Neuropsychological evaluations are comprehensive evaluations that consists of an interview and standardized testing with norm-referenced scores to best understand brain and behavior relationships. Often these evaluations help with diagnostic clarification and treatment optimization by assessing cognitive and emotional functioning. The length of the evaluation usually varies from a half to a full day in part because the specific procedures and tests are tailored to the purpose of the evaluation and the patient’s presenting difficulties.
