Frequently Asked Questions
What is neuropsychological testing like?
Testing is generally conducted in 2 hour sessions, and is done on a one-on-one basis. The examiner will ask a variety of questions that measure language functioning, visual/perceptual skills, memory, higher cognitive skills, etc.
How many sessions will I need to be evaluated?
As a general rule, there will be five visits. This may vary, depending on what tests are done and the patient's ability to test for 2 hours at a time. The first visit is an intake interview, followed by 3 testing sessions, and an interpretive session once the report is completed.
When will I find out the results of the evaluation?
After testing is completed, requested medical records are received, and the report is written. During an hour long interpretive session the results are discussed with the patient. At this time treatment recommendations are also made.
