NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL/PSYCHOLOGY ASSESSMENT

Michael Elliott and Associates offers comprehensive and responsive diagnostic neuropsychological assessment evaluations. This assessment forms the basis for understanding brain/behavior functioning and helps establish the effect of traumatic brain injury.  

 

We strive to only make a recommendation or consider requests for neuropsychological assessments after thoroughly reviewing records, prior testing, medical findings, and client input. 

 

Note the following:

 

  • There may be occasions when the neuropsychological assessment may not present a diagnosis of a disabling condition.

  • The neuropsychological assessment will not determine a diagnosable condition if none is present.

  •  We are able to accommodate client needs by conducting these assessments via telehealth and we work hard to insure the most convenient process possible for all clients.
