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.

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
- Attention and concentration
- Executive functioning such as organization and planning skills
- Processing speed
- Visual perception
- Motor coordination skills
- Emotional, social and behavioral functioning
One of our neuropsychologists will conduct the evaluation, interpret the test results to make a diagnosis and make recommendations for treatment. Evaluations may also be helpful in educational planning.
