Neuropsychological Assessment is used to assess cognitive level of functioning and to aid in diagnosis of neurological conditions, including dementia, mild cognitive impairment, traumatic brain injury and attention deficit disorder. Additionally, neuropsychological assessment can be used to produce a profile of individual strengths and weaknesses to guide cognitive remediation, inform psychotherapy and improve daily functioning.
Psychoeducational Assessment is utilized to assess for learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder. Psychoeducational assessment is used in conjunction with comprehensive symptom and history review to determine eligibility for various accommodations.

Other forms of accommodations may be also available based on individual needs, under the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
