The professionals at Long Island Neuropsychological Consultants have extensive experience in providing neuropsychological assessments for adults presenting with a variety of difficulties involving the brain and behavior.  We provide follow-up consultations with the patient and their families both for the purpose of providing diagnostic information and to develop plans to help with the challenges of such diagnoses.  During this assessment process, consultations with relevant medical professionals toward the development and implementation of treatment plans are maintained.  We also help the patient and their families to connect with appropriate resources to assist them with their needs.

What Do We Do

Clinical Neuropsychologists conduct evaluations that focus
on the relationship between brain and behavior.  The
evaluations assess brain functioning and behavior with
detailed objective testing of various functions.  This helps
with diagnosis and in developing detailed plans for
treatment and management.


What Is Tested

Evaluations differ from patient to patient, depending on the reason for the evaluation, the age, the medical history, and presenting problems of the individual.  Evaluations can cover the following areas

  • Intelligence/present levels
  • Intelligence/estimated pre-morbid levels

  • Processing Skills (auditory; visuoperceptual)
  • Attention/Concentration
  • Executive Functions (such as attention, impulse control, planning, organization, time management, self-monitoring, cognitive flexibility)
