Neuropsychological evaluations can provide a valuable informational tool for children or adults, parents, educators, rehabilitation specialists, physicians, psychologists and therapists, attorneys, etc. The scope of the evaluation may be quite targeted, for example in determining special services eligibility. Or, the objective of the neuropsychological evaluation may be to provide comprehensive analysis profiling cognitive strengths, and weakness, with guidelines for educational intervention or vocational goals. Outcomes may include such things as a student finally understanding, after years of wondering, the reasons behind how they learn, and why acquiring certain kinds of skills has always been so difficult. This new found appreciation may result in an increased sense of control in how to approach learning. Or, the assessment can help an adult become more aware of how the nature of their particular difficulty may influence facets of their daily lives, eg. in school, on the job, in doing tasks in daily life, or in their social relationships, etc. The information may then open the door to thinking about options for changing up some of the ways they work, or interact with other people. Or, neuropsychological information can assist families and older adults in planning for future possibilities such as living environments, or potential services etc. Essentially, the neuropsychological evaluation can provide information to assist in meeting goals, and in doing so, help in calming some the related stresses in moving forward.
