What to Expect

How long will the evaluation take?

The total time of the neuropsychological evaluation will vary according to the questions that you and/or your referring physician have. A portion of the time will be spent speaking with the neuropsychologist. Longer evaluations are sometimes divided into several appointments. Patients are encouraged to take breaks during the evaluation.

What can I expect from the outcome?

The product or outcome of a neuropsychological evaluation is a conclusion or set of conclusions made about the individual's functioning. If requested, the product also may include specific recommendations to guide treatment or otherwise enhance the individual's functioning. The conclusions and recommendations are developed by integrating information obtained from the standardized testing, interviews, records, and other observations.
