Comprehensive Neuropsychological Evaluation

A comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation involves gathering information from a patient's background, behavioral observations, and neuropsychological tests to understand a person's unique development to clarify diagnosis and plan/provide treatment. It involves a clinical interview, detailed analysis of a person’s behavior in different settings and the administration of neuropsychological tasks. Dr. Salinas evaluates the following:

  • General cognitive ability/Intelligence
  • Communicative and language skills
  • Visuospatial processing
  • Attentional capacities
  • Executive (thinking, reasoning) skills
  • Learning and memory abilities
  • Sensory and motor skills
  • Social cognition and interpersonal skills
  • Emotional adjustment
  • Academic achievement ​
  • One's ability to live independently and to manage financial affairs

Specific tasks are chosen based on (1) the referral question or reason for the evaluation, (2) the person's age, and (3) any previous evaluations. Dr. Salinas interprets the results and prepares a comprehensive report that includes individualized recommendations that may address academic/IEP accommodations, psychological, behavioral, and medical resources.

The feedback session is an integral and very important component of the overall assessment. It is usually scheduled within two weeks of the last evaluation session.​
