Frequently Asked Questions

Clinical neuropsychologists are psychologists who have received extensive training in brain-behavior relationships. Clinical neuropsychologists have expertise in how the interrelationship between brain structures and neurological conditions influence a person’s thoughts, actions and emotions. In addition, most neuropsychologists have completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in applied neuropsychology.

Testing involves a comprehensive review of all of your intake forms and available medical records, a clinical interview, completion of questionnaires and self-report instruments, and 6-8 hours of objective testing. Testing is customized to each individual but often encompasses major areas of cognition and behavior such as intellectual ability, visual and auditory memory, attention, language skills, perceptual abilities, executive functioning, academic skills, motor function, and personality.
Duration of testing depends on the needs and well-being of the individual client, and can vary from multiple 2-hour meetings to full-day sessions interspersed with numerous breaks.
Because Summit Neuropsychology is a small private practice, most assessment reports are completed several weeks after the completion of testing. Feedback sessions are scheduled at the client’s earliest convenience after the completion of the report.

Dr. Nichols provides a free 15-30 minute phone consultation so that you can share your personal circumstances and determine whether neuropsychological assessment and/or treatment would be beneficial for you.
