Neuropsychological Testing

1.

California Verbal Learning Test- Third Edition (CVLT-3)

The CVLT-3 is the most comprehensive and detailed assessment of verbal learning and memory for older adolescents and adults ages 16 and older. In this assessment, an examinee listens to series of words and is then asked to recall the terms and the category to which they belong. The CVLT is considered to be the most sensitive measure of episodic verbal learning.

With use of this test, clinicians can:

  • Assess individuals who have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementias, schizophrenia, ADHD, or neurological disorders

  • Test the degree to which a person can return to work, perform complex activities of daily living, and live independently

  • Evaluate insufficient effort or malingering to reduce false results

2.

Delis-Kaplin Executive Function Test (D-KEFS)

This measure is the first nationally standardized set of tests to evaluate higher level cognitive functions in both children and adults. With nine stand-alone tests, comprehensively assess the key components of executive functions believed to be mediated primarily by the frontal lobe.

The D-KEFS can be used to:

  • Assess the integrity of the frontal system of the brain

  • Determine how deficits in abstract, creative thinking may impact daily life

  • Plan coping strategies and rehabilitation programs tailored to each patient's profile of executive-function strengths and weaknesses 

3.

Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of
Neuropsychological Status Update (RBANS-Update) 

The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS) is a brief, individually administered test measuring, attention, language, visuospatial/constructional abilities, and immediate and delayed memory.

This instrument is used by clinicians and neuropsychologists to help:

  • Screen for deficits in acute-care settings

  • Track recovery during rehabilitation

  • Track progression of neurological disorders
