A Psychological Corporation
NEUROSCIENCE ASSOCIATES INCORPORATED is a multi-specialty clinical neuropsychology practice founded by Dr. Jeffrey Schaeffer in 1980. The practice was organized in response to the growing need for information concerning the adverse effects of brain injury and disease of the central nervous system upon cognitive, intellectual, emotional and behavioral capacities and function. The impact of psychological factors such as mood and anxiety symptoms, trauma and pain may also be a focus of assessment. The information obtained from neuropsychological and psychodiagnostic evaluations has direct relevance to a number of areas including differential diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation program planning, predictive outcome, educational, and forensic applications among others.
Our practice consists of a number of highly qualified and well-credentialed Associates trained in clinical neuropsychology as well as general clinical psychology. We feature a multi-cultural/multi-lingual focus in the provision of our services. Several of our Associates hail from differing cultural and ethnic backgrounds and are fluent in a variety of languages. These languages, besides English, include Spanish, Russian, Hebrew, Armenian, Farsi, Japanese, Korean and Chinese (Mandarin and Taiwanese dialects).
Our Associates also possess areas of special interest and expertise that include Pediatric, Adult and Geriatric neuropsychology, neuropsychology of medical disorders and brain injury, substance abuse and neurotoxic-related disorders, developmental and psychoeducational disturbances, sports neuropsychology, aviation neuropsychology, and a variety of forensic situations that include personal injury matters, disability and workers’ compensation, capacity/conservatorship and criminal cases. Psychodiagnostic specialists can assess individuals concerning issues related to emotional distress, trauma and other stressor-related disorders, anxiety, depression, sexual-molestation, wrongful termination and chronic medical illness/pain.
Our practice provides primarily diagnostic and consultative services. Referral sources include physicians, psychologists and other mental health practitioners, insurance carriers, educational institutions, attorneys, the courts and government agencies.
