Neuropsychological assessments are performed by licensed neuropsychologists or psychometrists, who will determine the specific testing methods for each individual. Typically, they involve a series of standardized tests, interviews, memory tests, and self-report tests. They might also include drawing, responding to prompts or images, and solving puzzles.
The assessment generally takes two to four hours, although it can take longer (up to eight hours) depending on how many elements are included in it and how quickly an individual moves through each section.
After the assessment is complete, the overseeing psychologist will analyze results by comparing them to those of healthy individuals with the same demographics. They will compile a comprehensive report of strengths and weaknesses, key findings, and recommendations based on results.
