What is a neuropsychological evaluaion?
According to the American Academy of Neuropsychology (AACN), a neuropsychological evaluation different from a psychoeducational evaluation because the psychoeducational evaluation looks at if there is a challenge with a basic academic skill, whereas the neuropsychological evaluation can provide information as to why there is a challenge. The neuropsychological evaluation is a more comprehensive evaluation that assesses functional skills of the brain that may be affected by brain injury, developmental problems, and medical issues. The neuropsychological evaluation can help to identify how a child learns and how challenges may be affecting the child in school, at home, and with peers by assessing a broader range of skills, as well as defining whether the expectations of the child is meeting their specific strengths and weaknesses. Skills assessed in a neuropsychological evaluation are often tailored to the referral concern, but generally include an assessment of cognitive, achievement, language, visual/motor, perceptual, learning/memory, attention, executive functioning, and social emotional skills, whereas a psychoeducational evaluation typically includes an assessment of cognitive, achievement, and social emotional skills.
