What is a Neuropsychological Assessment?

A neuropsychological assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of a person’s cognitive, psychological/ emotional, and behavioural functioning.


The individual takes part in a detailed interview and standardized testing. Additional information can also be collected by reviewing medical records, educational records, and speaking with family member(s) or someone that knows them well. A person’s scores are compared to normative test data and a profile is generated, which identifies areas of strength and weakness. The Clinical Neuropsychologist then interprets the profile and determines how it relates to brain functioning. Recommendations for school, work, daily life, and treatment are made based on the information collected during the assessment and neurocognitive profile.


A neuropsychological assessment can be conducted for several reasons and in the context of many neurodevelopmental/ neurological/ psychiatric problems and conditions. The following are a few examples:

  1. Autism-Spectrum Disorder

  2. Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  3. Prematurity and perinatal complications

  4. Epilepsy

  5. Learning Disorders

  6. Traumatic Brain Injury

  7. Stroke

  8. Dementia
