The purpose of a neuropsychological evaluation is to understand how medical conditions or treatments involving the brain or central nervous system affect the person’s development, including impacts on cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. This talk describes appropriateness of neuropsychological evaluation for different populations, as well as delineating when neuropsychological evaluations are required versus other types of psychological, cognitive or behavioral that may be frequently confused with outpatient neuropsychological services. Components of the neuropsychological evaluation will be described, along with examples of different referring conditions, assessment procedures, and recommendations based on differing patient needs.
