Neuropsychology is a hybrid discipline of sorts, a merge between psychology, neurology and everyday life. It specializes in the study of the brain and the impact of cognitive functioning on the adaptation and efficacy of the person in his daily activities. Because many children, adults or elderly people live with difficulties significant enough to affect their performance, their functioning, their behaviour or their autonomy, the assessment in neuropsychology becomes all the more important when needing to depict an individual’s specific cognitive profile in order to identify and address the problem.

The Assessment Process in Neuropsychology

The neuropsychological assessment is in fact a specialized diagnostic process, during which one’s intellectual and executive functioning, attention, memory, language, perception, motor function and academic skills are all examined. This process enables the neuropsychologist to identify one’s overall cognitive profile in order to conclude in a precise diagnosis, through the systematic elimination of all other causes capable of explaining one’s difficulties. This holistic approach provides insight into an individual’s reality, with regards to his capacities, his setting and his current situation.
