Memphis Neuropsychology, LLC is dedicated to performing comprehensive neuropsychological assessments for all ages and multiple referral concerns. The practice is owned and directed by Dr. Sarah D. Richie, who is trained in the assessment of the pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric populations. If your primary care physician, neurologist, neurosurgeon, or other health care professional has referred you or your child for a neuropsychological evaluation, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
A neuropsychological evaluation is much more than a battery of tests. Specialized training in neuroanatomy and brain-behavior relationships allows the neuropsychologist to decide what measures would be appropriate to include in the test battery and to administer the selected tests while paying attention to more than just scores. Dr. Richie feels that doctoral level interpretation, by the neuropsychologist, of the patient's presentation at ALL stages of the evaluation is essential to producing quality reports and assuring the highest evaluation standards. Qualitative reviews of the patient's presentation and of their test performance are vital to the interpretation of scores, resulting in a more comprehensive, specialized review of the impact of the disorder/injury that prompted the referral for testing.
