A psychological or neuropsychological assessment is used to understand how a person thinks and learns in everyday life. Dr. DeBastos gathers information from interviews, medical and educational records, observations of behavior during the assessment, and performance on a variety of psychological tasks to understand how an individual's brain works in different situations. A comprehensive evaluation includes an assessment of general cognitive ability, attention, executive control processes (reasoning, organizational skills), language skills, visual spatial processing, learning and memory abilities, motor skills, social cognition, emotional adjustment, and academic achievement.
