Behavioral Associates provides neuropsychological testing to assess specific deficits in cognitive (brain) functioning. The tests, which are administered by a trained staff member, are standardized instruments that have been validated through clinical trials and have proven to provide an accurate picture of a patient’s cognitive functioning.
Frequently neuropsychological testing is recommended following a head trauma or after some form of injury to the brain has occurred (as with a stroke). Injuries to the brain can result in difficulties with memory, speech, motor functioning and reasoning or spatial skills.
Testing cognitive abilities and examining performance patterns yields results that can be extremely helpful in the assessment and treatment of traumatic brain injury, dementia, neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, psychiatric disorders and learning difficulties. Results can also provide valuable insight of the effects of various medical conditions and toxic substances on brain functioning.
Neuropsychological tests reveal information as to the type and severity of the deficit so that an individual can receive the treatment best suited for their specific injury or condition. At Behavioral Associates, we perform the most advanced neuropsychological testing in order to help develop a treatment plan for optimal improvement in quality of functioning.
