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 reviewing more than just scores. Be sure that you ask any potential evaluator exactly what type of tests they will administer. This is especially the case if you plan to submit the report to a school for accommodation requests, as some practitioners use abbreviated IQ and achievement tests not accepted by schools. Being a discerning consumer is key in ensuring you/your child receives the most comprehensive evaluation.
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 performance are vital to score interpretation, resulting in a comprehensive, specialized review of the impact of the disorder/injury that prompted the referral for testing.
