A neuropsychological assessment examines brain-behaviour relationships. More specifically, it examines the presence and severity of any cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioural difficulties associated with specific neurological conditions including epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, concussion, brain tumours, etc. At Royal York Psychology we provide neuropsychological assessments for children, adolescents, and adults. A neurocognitive assessment involves the testing of several cognitive/thinking functions including memory, attention, language, visual perception, and executive functioning, in addition to a comprehensive clinical interview and the completion of several questionnaires. The assessment can identify individual cognitive strengths and weaknesses, guide rehabilitation and provide cognitive compensation strategies.
At Royal York Psychology we offer neuropsychological assessments to identify or rule out a host of conditions, including, but not limited to:
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
