What is Involved in a Neuropsychological Evaluation?

Student Evaluators

Neuropsychological evaluation often includes at least 3 components:

  1. A review of the medical and other records;
  2. An interview with the client and, often, another person who knows the client well. This might be a family member, close friend, or caregiver;
  3. Administration of tests that measure abilities and mood. Using these three sources of information, a clinical team will develop a comprehensive report that summarizes relevant medical history, evaluation results, areas where cognitive or emotional functioning may have changed or need attention, and recommendations for work/school, home, and family.
