Neuropsychology

The Neuropsychology program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital focuses on the assessment of brain-behavior relationships and neurocognitive functioning and assists with treating changes in brain function.

A doctor, teacher, school psychologist or other professional may refer children and adolescents to our neuropsychologists due to changes in memory, attention, executive functioning, processing speed, behavior, socialization, emotional control, learning difficulties, or other cognitive concerns due to a medical condition such as a concussion, traumatic brain injury, stroke, seizures, epilepsy, exposure to chemotherapy and/or radiation, genetic condition, or other medical condition.

Neuropsychological Evaluation

Formal testing of neurocognitive abilities, called a neuropsychological evaluation, may be completed to assess brain functioning. A neuropsychological examination measures brain functions such as:

  • Intellectual abilities
  • Learning and Memory
  • Attention and concentration
  • Executive functioning, such as organization and planning skills, time management, et cetera
  • Processing speed
  • Language
  • Visual perception
  • Motor coordination skills
  • Emotional, social and behavioral functioning  

One of our neuropsychologists or supervised trainees will conduct the evaluation and interpret the test results to make a diagnosis and make recommendations for treatment. Evaluations may also be helpful in educational planning.
