Neuropsychology Services

We have a team of experienced psychologists and neuropsychologists to help

At JADE, our Neuropsychology program specializes in the relationship between the brain and cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning. We also work with medical practioners in providing 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. In conjunction with our psychotherapy and cognitive remediation programming, patients receive the integrative care needed to recover from the effects of neurodevelopmental and neurocognitive issues impairing functionality and quality of life.
