What Does Neuropsychological Testing Assess?

A typical neuropsychological analysis of a child from 5 to 25 can last approximately 6 to 8 hours and a comprehensive assessment includes evaluation of:

  • Intelligence

  • Basic achievement skills including math and reading

  • Executive skills including planning, organization of information, flexibility and inhibition

  • Attention skills

  • Learning and memory skills

  • Language functioning

  • Visual-spatial skills

  • Sensorimotor functioning

  • Personality/emotional functioning

Depending upon the individual child, some areas of assessment might require more detail than others.

An important aspect of testing is interpreting the results in light of a detailed past developmental, educational and medical history of your child. This information is key to understanding your child's unique situation.
