Neuropsychological assessment is a comprehensive assessment of cognitive processes. We can evaluate neurological or neurodevelopmental disorders and understand the etiology and evolution of a disorder. Neuropsychology is the unique integration of genetic, developmental, and environmental history with testing data to better understand brain. A Practical Guide to Geriatric Neuropsychology focuses on the skills required in testing and treating the older adult population. Topics discussed include normal aging, determining competency, important factors to consider in conducting clinical interviews, the importance of evaluating for depression and substance abuse, screening tools for use in practice, cognitive training and intervention.

Neuropsychological evaluation reports are permanent medical records, so the neuropsychologist will need to have as much information as possible before a final report is issued. Usually reports can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to be completed, depending on the available information.
