Neuropsychological Assessment

 

We provide comprehensive neuropsychological and psychodiagnostic assessment services across the lifespan, including pediatric, adolescent, adult, geriatric and elderly. Several of our Associates possess special interest and expertise in the assessment of geriatric patients with a variety of cognitive and behavioral disorders that may include dementia syndromes of various causes, as well as the more common mood disorders that are frequently accompanied by a variety of cognitive complaints generally associated with memory loss. Elderly patients who are depressed are frequently misdiagnosed as having a CNS disease-related dementia syndrome. Since depressive disorders are frequently treatable and often fully reversible, this is a particularly important differential diagnosis among the elderly.

Three of our current Associates also possess specialty skills in Pediatric and Adolescent Neuropsychology. Such cases often involve developmental disorders, attention-deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity, psychoeducational disorders, and at times injuries and diseases of the brain and nervous system (e.g. traumatic, infectious, metabolic, neoplastic, etc.). Differential diagnosis of behavioral and emotional disorders, particularly those that are associated with cognitive difficulties and school-related problems, are among our more frequent referrals. We work closely with several pediatricians, child neurologists, child psychiatrists and special educators in order to provide for the most comprehensive assessment and necessary treatment planning and interventions.
