Assessments for Neuropsychological and Personality Issues
Often, people know they have difficulties with paying attention, learning new things, achieving certain goals, or life functioning. But they may not know why. With psychological assessments, clients that need answers for themselves or their children can figure out the cause of their challenges and find the appropriate treatment to address them.
These assessments systematically measure the function of specific structures and pathways in the brain within a formal environment. Different attention, learning, personality, behavioral, and achievement difficulties are tested for using different methodologies depending on what the client’s symptoms may be. If you are interested in learning more about these assessments, contact Long Island Psychology today.
Why Take A Neuropsychological or Personality Assessment?
Neuropsychological and personality assessments can be a great help in determining what treatments and strategies you or your children can use to help you live a more fulfilling life. From childhood to adulthood, you may have questions about yourself or someone you love that you struggle to diagnose on your own. Assessments are one of the most effective tools to find an answer.
The benefits of completing a neuropsychological or personality assessment to determine whether you or a family member have an attention deficit or learning disorder are numerous. If you receive a positive diagnosis for a disorder, you can:
- Put a name to the problems you’ve been having and know that you aren’t alone in facing it
- Work with your therapist to find new strategies to help face your challenges based on the diagnosis
- Have confidence in your ability to adapt to difficulties related to the disorder in the future
If you are not diagnosed with a disorder, it also tells your therapist valuable information that allows them to delve deeper by ruling out alternate conditions. Some of the most common conditions of the type that are assessed include Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), emotional dysregulation disorder, and dyslexia.
