A better understanding of behavior and present functioning can help your treatment team identify your strengths and build a plan that works for you.
Psychological testing is not a single test. There are many research-backed tests and procedures used to assess specific aspects of a person’s psychological makeup.
Prairie View utilizes psychological testing most commonly under the following circumstances:
- Concern about dementia. This testing includes comprehensive assessment of immediate and delayed memory, language, attention, concentration, visuospatial skills, mental processing speed and executive functioning.
- Concern about a head injury or stroke. Cognitive and psychological evaluation for traumatic brain injury/stroke includes thorough evaluation of executive functioning, immediate and delayed memory, sensorimotor deficits, visuospatial skills, language, attention, concentration and psychological profile.
- Concerns about a loved one’s safety behind the wheel. Driving capacity evaluations include determination of driving capacity through assessment of vision, divided attention, processing speed and reaction time.
