Neuropsychological Assessment

Do you experience cognitive, emotional and / or behavioral difficulties?

Do you have problems with memory, attention or concentration?

Through the Neuropsychological Assessment it is possible not only to identify the cognitive functions that are compromised, but also the cognitive functions that are preserved (for example, attention, memory, language, executive functions, reasoning) and consequently the degree of impairment of these same functions.

What is Neuropsychological Assessment for?
1. To identify in a detailed and detailed way the individual's abilities that are compromised, namely in the cognitive, emotional and / or behavioral alterations in cases of:

  • Non-degenerative pathology (ex: stroke, traumatic brain injury);

  • Degenerative pathology (eg Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease);

  • Neurodevelopmental disorder (eg Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), among others;

2. Performing a differential diagnosis (eg, categorizing subtypes of dementia or differentiating neurological and psychiatric symptoms);

3. Monitoring of therapies, whether pharmacological and / or neuropsychological rehabilitation;

4. Development of neuropsychological rehabilitation programs, identifying limitations and resources of individuals and outlining intervention strategies.
