​Why Neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology examines and measures brain-behavior relationships, while pediatric neuropsychology integrates this with an understanding of child development.  The specialty has developed and validated measures of cognitive abilities to a degree unmatched by others. Clinical neuropsychologists additionally have clinical psychological expertise as a foundation, bringing a depth of understanding of the people they work with.

Fee Structure

Our structure is fee-for-services, to reduce paperwork and help keep fees competitive. It is recommended that families/patients check with insurance first to authorize an evaluation. Detailed statements will be provided on request to facilitate claims. The assessment fee varies according to the complexity of a referral, and an estimate will be provided after the scope of a case is established. We ask for payment in advance of service.  For those for whom this poses a problem, payment may be made in two installments upon request.

Choosing a Neuropsychologist
All psychologists learn to give a variety of psychological tests (e.g., IQ and personality tests). Fully trained neuropsychologists additionally draw on at least two years of specialized training in brain-behavior relationships. This specialization can be invaluable for complex cases. It can enable proper ruling in and ruling out of diagnoses, and provide a full understanding of how to interpret assessment results.
