Evaluation Services in Rehabilitation Psychology
Comprehensive evaluations combine information from the individual and/or family, other service providers, medical records and even school or work records to determine what assistance, if any, may be needed. Comprehensive evaluations may include psychological and/or neuropsychological testing.
Psychological assessments describe how personality characteristics, expectations, social skills and current stresses may affect school, work, independence at home, independence in the community or response to rehabilitation services.
Neuropsychological testing addresses how individuals' cognitive abilities may affect these same activities (i.e., school, work, independence at home or independence in the community).
