Neuropsychological testing is a specialized psychological evaluation that helps us understand your symptoms and how they relate to your brain’s current functionality. The testing serves a number of purposes, including to gain a diagnosis regarding specific conditions, to identify your strengths and weaknesses and to determine the best treatment plan moving forward in order to maximize your opportunity for success.
Psychological assessments at Seattle Christian Counseling include four phases: Interview, Testing, Analysis and Feedback.
