Neuropsychological evaluations evaluate intelligence, attention, memory, language expression and comprehension, abstraction, comprehension of dangerous situations, apraxia, and academic functioning, among other facets of cognition. The goal of neuropsychological evalutions is to assist with diagnosis and treatment.
