Assessment & Diagnosis Through Neuropsychology
A Neuropsychological evaluation is a testing method through which a neuropsychologist can acquire data about a patient’s cognitive, motor, behavioral, language, and executive functioning. The data attained in testing can provide information leading to the diagnosis of a cognitive deficit, which areas of the brain are being affected, and thus providing the road towards the best treatment options available for the condition which has been diagnosed.
Pre-Event Baseline Evaluations
A Pre-Event Baseline Evaluation, is a Neuropsychological evaluation prior to the onset of any particular diagnosis or injury due to an accident. FOR EXAMPLE: In the case of sports injuries or types of employment that expose an individual to the possibility of a (TBI) Traumatic Brain Injury, a Pre-Event Baseline Evaluation can establish a record of a persons brain function prior to an accident. Thus, documenting cognitive changes and deficits that were not present prior to an accident and the resulting injury.
