Adult Neuropsychological Evaluations
Adult neuropsychological testing involves a formal evaluation of abilities such as memory, language skills, visual processing, and executive skills (organization, planning, inhibition, attention) as they relate to brain structure and brain development. Testing may also include assessment of achievement skills (reading, math, etc.) and emotional functioning.
Adults are referred for neuropsychological evaluation in order to assist in diagnostic clarification and treatment planning regarding dementia, brain injury from an accident, illness or other physical stressor, as well as for difficulties in learning, attention, and behavior.
Adult Psychological Evaluations
Psychological evaluations provide some information on cognitive abilities, but the primary focus is on emotional behavioral, and social functioning. Assessments of depression, anxiety, and other emotional disorders are part of these evaluations.
Adult Hospital/Clinic Consultations
Patients are seen in hospitals at the request of physicians. Usually the evaluations involve determination of presence/absence of a brain illness, emotional concerns, or both. Most often testing takes place on a behavioral health unit. Edelson & Associate’s clinicians also provide testing and therapy services on a rehabilitation unit with individuals who have brain injuries (like strokes) or physical problems (such as spinal or joint injuries). We also see people as part of a multidisciplinary heart disease clinic.
Therapeutic services are provided to adults, couples, and families. Psychotherapy focuses on treatment of emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, adjustment, loss and grief, stress management, emotional response to health problems, and other aspects of emotional distress.
