The neuropsychologist is a health professional skilled in conducting cognitive evaluations and making a clinical judgment on the nature of neuropsychological disorders.
Using interviews and psychometric tests, the neuropsychologist conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your situation to determine the cause of your cognitive/behavioural/affective disorders, in order to specify a specific diagnosis.
He can then establish a detailed profile of your situation and its impacts on your daily life, in order to help you resume a satisfactory life.
Here is a list of situations in which a neuropsychologist can intervene :
- Craniocerebral trauma (mild to severe)
- Cognitive disorders
- Parkinson’s disease
- Language disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Lewy body dementia (LBD)
