How can I prepare myself or my child for a Neuropsychological Examination?

A neuropsychological examination (NPE) is a series of tests designed to objectively assess cognitive abilities, such as memory, attention/concentration, language, visual spatial, reasoning, etc.Testing involves paper and pencil and hands-on activities, answering questions, and sometimes using a computer. Your clinician will discuss the examination with you prior to your visit, however, listed below are some general guidelines:

  1. All testing appointments begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and should be completed between 1-2pm, much like a school day. Please plan to arrive at our office by 8:45 a.m.
  2. Get plenty of rest the night before.
  3. Bring a snack, lunch and drinks.
  4. If you wear glasses or hearing aids, please bring them to your appointment.
  5. If you or your child takes regular medications, discuss this with your neuropsychologist prior to your examination appointment.
  6. If your child is 8 or younger, an adult must remain at the office for the full-day. If your child is 9 or older, it is preferred that you stay.
