Neuropsychological Testing

Neuropsychological Testing uses psychological tests and careful observation to create a systematic, evidence-based study of all the major areas of cognitive functioning (intellect, attention, information processing, memory, language, visual motor integration, learning, achievement, and behavioral functioning). Data are interpreted in light of current research findings about brain function.  Neuropsychological test data are used to make diagnoses based upon research about different profiles of cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

We believe that neuropsychological testing should be highly personalized care. Unlike other testing sites, all testing in our practice is completed exclusively by our Doctoral Level, Licensed Psychologists. No students or techs will test you or your child in our practice.

We have a wide variety of tests to accommodate all test-takers. We have tests that are language-free and motor-free, so that every individual can demonstrate his or her true abilities. We can also be flexible in scheduling lots of breaks or short sessions for test-takers who become overstimulated easily, or need to move to feel comfortable.

Neuropsychological testing is recommended for:

  • Learning disability testing (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, visual processing difficulties, auditory/phonological processing difficulties)
  • Autistic spectrum testing, including testing for Asperger’s Disorder
  • ADHD testing
  • Evaluation of gifted individuals with learning difficulties (twice exceptional or ‘2e’)
  • Intellectual Disability Testing
  • Testing for individuals with Genetic and Chromosomal differences
  • Medical problems that can impact thinking, learning and behavior (such as mitochondrial disorders, sickle cell, or exposure to toxins during pregnancy)
  • Testing for anxiety and depression or mood regulation disorders

Most importantly, psychological testing data are used to create an evidence-based action plan and recommendations. Recommendations are reviewed by Dr. Resnik, who also holds a Bachelors and Master’s degree in special education.
