Adult neuropsychological evaluations will include common elements such as:
-In-depth clinical interview and review of available records such as medical and academic. Adult
interviews often involve collateral sources such as spouses.
-General intelligence
-Attention and concentration
-Higher-level executive skills (e.g., sequencing, reasoning, problem solving)
-Language and, as appropriate, academic skills
-Visual-spatial skills (e.g., perception)
-Learning and memory
-Motor and sensory skills
-Mood and personality, as appropriate

Some abilities may be measured in more detail than others, depending on the needs of the individual or referral question.

Adults will be asked to complete paper and pencil tests and answering questions; computer-based tests may also be part of an examination.

Depending on the question(s) to be addressed and age and capacity of the patient, the actual testing time may vary but may involve 5-7 hours; additional time is spent preparing the appropriate report.


Diagnosis


Referrals for neuropsychological consultation and/or evaluation may arise from many conditions that can lead to problems with thinking, emotional and behavioral regulation, academic achievement, vocational adjustment and motor problems. Neuropsychological evaluation can provide insight into the differential diagnosis and the relative contribution of neuropsychological and non-neuropsychological factors.
