Overview

Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that deals with the relationship between the nervous system, especially the brain, and cerebral or mental functions such as language, memory, and perception. A neuropsychological evaluation may be requested when a person is concerned about thinking or memory problems. The evaluation includes an interview to gather background information, followed by a series of standardized tests.

Evaluation

The evaluation results help identify strengths and weaknesses in terms of thinking abilities and memory. It can also determine whether depression and anxiety are contributing factors and determine if any changes can be attributed to a person’s age, illness, or dementia. Testing can also provide a baseline for comparison in the future and aid in the treatment process.

Pediatric Neuropsychological Evaluations

Children often require neuropsychological evaluations, too, and Neurology Associates offers these services for minors on a cash-only basis.

Sports-related concussions, car accidents, learning disabilities, and ADHD rank among the leading reasons why older children may need specialized testing.

For younger kids and toddlers, key indicators include attention issues, learning disabilities, car accidents, prenatal insult (such as loss of oxygen, trauma at birth, premature birth), epilepsy, seizure disorders, developmental delays, and traumatic brain injury.

If your child’s pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, or developmental specialist has recommended a neuropsychological evaluation, Neurology Associates can help. In addition, if you are seeking assistance for your child from government agencies such as the Division of Developmental Disabilities, a diagnosis from a pediatrician or school won’t suffice. Arizona requires a diagnosis from a licensed psychologist for families to qualify for services.

Our clinical psychologist Dr. Jonna Dunlap provides these in-depth assessments at our Chandler clinic. Plan to set aside eight hours for a pediatric neuropsychological evaluation; the time includes a lunch break to give patients a chance to rest. Neurology Associates does not provide lunch.

Call 480 800 4890 to schedule an appointment.

We’re looking for talented Neurologists to join our growing team.
