Neuropsychological testing involves a comprehensive examination of a persons neurobehavioral functioning and ability. During an evaluation, a series of tests will be administered that will allow your neuropsychologist to better understand and evaluate your perceptual reasoning, memory, executive functioning, verbal comprehension and reasoning, motor functioning, and processing speed. In some instances, behavioral, personality, and emotional assessments will also be included in order to better understand how, and to what degree, your social and emotional life contributes to your current difficulties. Many of the tests that will be administered on the day of your assessment will involve answering questions and responding to pictures, words, puzzles, and other items. You may be asked to draw pictures, define words, construct objects, solve problems, and use a computer. The purpose and complexity of each task will vary, though you should expect that some will be more challenging than others. You will be asked to do your very best on each task. This is important because it will better ensure that your testing results accurately reflect your abilities. After the assessment is over, your results will be scored and summarized.
