Our neuropsychology team deals with illnesses and injury that disrupt normal brain function. We provide care to adults and pediatric patients and can assist with the assessment of dementia; ADHD and learning disabilities; concussions; and other changes in concentration, reasoning, memory and personality.
Our neuropsychologists specialize in issues related to learning, behavioral and social problems. Our patients often present with difficulties at work or school, memory loss, inattention, or social weakness. These challenges may be the result of a genetic disorder, autism spectrum disorder, developmental disability, concussion, head injury, stroke, psychiatric or aging issues.
These are some of the common conditions we address:
- Memory problems
- Attention problems such as ADHD and ADD
- Concussion and head trauma
- Seizures or epilepsy
- Brain tumors
- Parkinson's disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Alzheimer's disease
- Learning disabilities
- Autism spectrum disorders
A neuropsychologist has training in clinical psychology, with additional training to understand the relationship between the brain and behaviors or functions of the brain. These functions include attention, memory, language, and problem solving skills. If you've had a brain-related illness or injury, or are simply not thinking as clearly as you used to, a neuropsychologist can provide evaluation and treatment.
The first step of a neuropsychological evaluation is an interview with the patient to discuss history and symptoms. Further testing may include intelligence tests, problem solving, memory, language, visual-spatial abilities, mental processing speed, attention, motor, and sensory evaluations. Measures of mood and personality may also be included.
