Clinical Neuropsychology - A Guide for Patients and Their Families
Clinical neuropsychology is a specialty profession that focuses on brain functioning.  A clinical neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related to brain structures and systems.

A typical neuropsychological evaluation will involve assessment of the following: general intellect, higher level executive skills, attention and concentration, learning and memory, language, visual-spatial skills, motor and sensory skills, mood and personality.

The test results can be used to identify weaknesses in specific areas, help differentiate among illnesses, establish a "baseline," plan treatments that use strengths to compensate for weaknesses, and help your doctors understand what problems you may have in everyday life.
Pediatric Neuropsychology - A Guide for Parents
School assessments are usually performed to determine whether a child qualifies for special education programs or therapies to enhance school performance.  They focus on achievement and skills needed for academic success.  Generally, they do not diagnose learning or behavior disorders caused by altered brain function or development.

A neuropsychological evaluation assists in better understanding a child's functioning in areas such as memory, attention, perception, coordination, language, and personality.

The test results can help explain why the child is having school problems, detect the effects of developmental, neurological, and medical problems, such as epilepsy, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, or a general disorder.

Most importantly, testing provides a better understanding of the child's behavior and learning in school, at home, and in the community.  The evaluation can guide teachers, therapists, and parents to better help the child achieve his or her potential.
