Whereas the neurological evaluation is primarily concerned with physical changes to the brain or basic cognition, the neuropsychological exam comprehensively evaluates cognitive functions to help identify the nature of the injury as well as make recommendations for treatment. These evaluations help assess how the brain has been affected and what areas of functioning are impacted.

When a child or teen has a concussion, is involved in a head injury or has epilepsy, one of the most important parts of their treatment is having a neuropsychological evaluation. This evaluation can help you seek testing or study accommodations for school or standardized tests, as well as monitor their progress during rehabilitation. Dr. Malkin can perform a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation to assess your child’s medical condition and make recommendations for an effective treatment plan.
