Life Dimensions Neuropsychology Services

LifeDimensions Neuropsychologists are trained to understand changes in thinking, memory, emotion and behavior that can occur with many neurological, developmental or psychological diagnoses. Through consultation and testing, the neuropsychologist identifies the patient’s specific strengths and weaknesses and makes recommendations to the patient, family, therapists, and/or physicians. Once recommendations are made, an individualized plan is developed so that the patient’s goals can be achieved.
