I am a neuropsychologist where I conduct neuropsychological assessments on an individual's brain-behavior functioning. I look at all the different domains in cognitive functioning, including intellectual functioning ("IQ"), memory, attention and concentration, processing speed, language, fine motor skills, executive functioning, etc. The testing consists of paper-pencil type tasks, computerized tests, and verbal question-answer items.
My role is to conduct the eval, determine strengths and weaknesses, and recommend what treatment would be necessary to get them back to their optimal level of functioning. This could be through either cognitive rehabilitation, psychotherapy, medication, etc.
I typically see kids with ADHD, learning disorders, language disorders, and/or autism spectrum issues. For adults, I mainly see folks who've had concussions that have then resulted in residual or persistent problems with their attention, memory, or processing speed. I also do med-legal evaluations where an individual is either suing someone or seeking workers' comp benefits after having a concussion/traumatic brain injury and secondary depression, anxiety, insomnia, etc.
