Comprehensive neuropsychological testing is typically done over multiple sessions. Areas evaluated are: cognition, memory and learning, attention, executive functioning, language, visual spatial processing, sensorimotor skills, and emotional functioning. A flexible approach is utilized and the assessment battery and process are tailored toward each patient's individual needs. Following completion of the evaluation, a feedback session is held in which all of the results and recommendations are reviewed. A detailed written report is then generated.
