Neuropsych Assessments

Neuropsychological assessments are a performance-based method to assess cognitive functioning. This method is used to examine the cognitive consequences of brain damage, brain disease, and severe mental illness. Our Neuropsychology program specializes in the relationship between the brain and cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning and offers neuropsychological assessments to assist providers with diagnosis, treatment planning and ongoing monitoring of a patient’s cognitive status. Jade utilizes a standardized battery of testing to assess patient’s cognitive abilities, including attention, memory and executive functioning (e.g., planning, organizing and problem-solving) as well as linguistic, visuo-perceptual, motor and sensory skills, and their psychological state.

What Does A Neuropsych Assessment Accomplish?

A comprehensive neuropsychological assessment is the only way to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the functional deficits of neurological patients, including those suffering from stroke, traumatic brain injury, dementia, epilepsy, and brain tumors, among others (McKhann et al., 1984; Roman et al., 1993; Leon-Carrion, ibidem; Martelli et al., 2006). Additionally, the American Academy of Neurology has rated neuropsychological testing as “Established” with Class II evidence and a Type A recommendation and having ICD diagnoses (National Academy of Neuropsychology, 1996).

In any situation where an injury or illness has the potential to negatively impact cognitive functioning, a neuropsychological assessment may be useful. This includes traumatic brain injuries, illnesses and treatment including cancer, and testing to determine mental deficiencies in children.
