Psychological testing and evaluations are also offered. The primary difference between a psychological exam and a neuropsychological evaluation is breadth and scope of testing. Specifically, testing for mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, etc.) may or may not require lengthy tests of brain functioning.

ADHD / ADD
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Learning Disorders (dyslexia, etc.)
Traumatic Brain Injury
Dementia & Mild Cognitive Impairment
Parkinson's Disease / Movement Disorders
Stroke & Anoxic Brain Injuries
Depression / Anxiety / Bipolar / OCD / PTSD
