Testing for Adults

Neuropsychological Assessment Center for Adults in Walnut Creek, CA

Our center offers psychological, neuropsychological, and psychoeducational assessments to adults.

These comprehensive evaluations are conducted by licensed psychologists or neuropsychologists and involve gathering information about an individual’s cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. The assessments aim to identify areas of strength and weakness, diagnose mental health disorders or learning difficulties, and develop appropriate treatment recommendations for adults seeking to improve their mental health and well-being. 

ADHD

ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) can also impact adults, and ADHD testing for adults typically involves a comprehensive evaluation of their symptoms and functioning in various areas of life, including work, school, and social relationships. ADHD evaluations for adults may involve interviews with the individual and their family members, as well as behavioral observations and standardized assessments of cognitive and emotional functioning. The assessment may also involve a review of medical history and current medications.

The results of an ADHD evaluation can help diagnose the disorder and inform the development of appropriate interventions and accommodations to support the individual’s success in daily life. ADHD testing for adults can be an important step in helping individuals understand their symptoms and develop strategies to manage them effectively, such as medication management, organizational skills training, and behavioral therapy.

Memory/Dementia

Assessment for memory and dementia typically involves a comprehensive evaluation of cognitive functioning, including memory, attention, language, and problem-solving abilities. These evaluations may be recommended for individuals who are experiencing memory loss, confusion, or other symptoms of cognitive decline, as well as for those who are at risk for developing dementia. Memory and dementia assessments may involve interviews with the individual and their family members, as well as standardized assessments of cognitive functioning.

The results of these evaluations can help diagnose memory-related disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, and inform the development of appropriate interventions to support the individual’s cognitive functioning and quality of life. Memory and dementia assessments can be an important tool in identifying and addressing cognitive decline, and helping individuals and their families develop strategies to manage these challenges effectively.
