Neuropsychological evaluations address skills within broad domains of functioning – including language, memory, attention, visual/perceptual, visual-motor, social-emotional and behavioral, and executive functioning – that can affect learning and performance.
Comprehensive evaluation also includes assessment of environmental and contextual factors (such as educational setting) that can impact functioning. Evaluations can confirm diagnoses, facilitate educational or treatment planning, and provide updated measures of functioning in order to determine intervention effectiveness or to help understand changes in functioning.
Test batteries are individualized and tailored to the individual’s presenting concerns. Dr. Shapiro administers all testing herself and does not use trainees or students.
For acute injuries such as sports-related concussions, or to address more focused and narrow questions regarding changes in functioning with more chronic conditions, more abbreviated batteries are provided, typically within one brief appointment.
