Reasons for referral:

Neuropsychological evaluations are requested for a variety of reasons.   Testing is usually recommended when there are symptoms or complaints involving memory, attention/concentration, sudden changes in mood and behavior or periods of disorientation or confusion. Referrals are often associated with changes in cognition that extend beyond expectations for concussion or mild TBI.   The change may be due to any of a number of medical, neurological, psychological, or genetic causes. Testing will be helpful in understanding your specific situation.
