Adult Neuropsychological Evaluations

What to expect from our comprehensive testing process

Neuropsychological evaluations help us make recommendations for patients who have neurocognitive conditions, which affect mood, thinking, or behavior, as well as neurological conditions. The results of these tests give patients, families, and doctors information to make decisions in a number of key areas, including:

  • Treatment plans, medication, and possible surgical procedures
  • Care or services from community resources
  • Living arrangements, including independent living, assisted living, or in-home care
  • Means to improve day-to-day functioning and returning to work, school, or sports

Please call (313) 876-2526 to schedule a neuropsychology evaluation.

Neuropsychological Evaluation Process

1st Appointment – Intake

Once we receive a referral from your Henry Ford provider, we review your medical records thoroughly. Next, we schedule an interview with you to learn about your concerns and issues. During the pre-testing period, also known as the clinical interview stage, we may interview your spouse or partner, as well as other family members who may be involved in your care. These appointments are 1 hour long and can be done either in person or virtually.

2nd Appointment – Testing

A neuropsychological evaluation can take between two to eight hours. The time can vary depending on your specific condition and age. This appointment is only in person.

You’ll complete several tasks on a computer and with pencil and paper in a quiet, one-on-one setting with one of our specially trained team members. We’ll test many different areas, including:

  • Ability to organize and plan
  • Attention and concentration
  • Emotional and behavioral function
  • Language abilities
  • Memory and learning
  • Reasoning, thinking, and understanding
  • Visual perception

Once the evaluation is complete, you can go home.

3rd Appointment – Feedback/Results (Optional)

We’ll add a copy of the results to your medical record and send you a copy in MyChart. We’re happy to schedule an appointment for you to see us either virtual or in person to review your report with our neuropsychology team. Your referring doctor will also discuss the results with you and use the report to help confirm or rule out potential diagnoses and determine an effective treatment plan.
