        Formal Assessment of Neuropsychological and/or Psychological Performances can aid in identifying difficulties
in functioning due to emotional or physical traumas/events.
Documentation of the presence of the absence of these factors can be highlighted through the intensive clinical interview, review
of the records and history, and standardized testing.


         The neuropsychological examination represents the standard for identifying potential functional neurocognitive impairments by analysis of a patient's sensory-perceptual, motor/visual, spatial, attention/concentration, language, memory, intellectual and executive, academic or personality/effortful areas of performance. The data is then reviewed and interpreted in light of the patient's individual history. Recommendations can be reviewed with the patient or the referring source for appropriate treatment or
follow-up considerations as indicated.


         The psychological examination is often incorporated into
a standard neuropsychological evaluation though can also be a
free-standing evaluation of psychological concerns.  Identifying depression, anxiety, PTSD, or axis II contributions can help
treating health care providers and structuring their therapy efforts, reducing recidivism, and in enhancing treatment in clients.  
Hereto, the data is reviewed and interpreted in light of the patient's individual history. Recommendations can be reviewed with the patient or the referring source for appropriate treatment or
follow-up considerations as indicated.

        It is strongly recommended that the neuropsychologist have both pre-doctoral and post-doctoral formal training (fellowship placement) is strongly recommended for an accurate neuropsychological assessment that demands a careful
and well-informed assessment of multiple areas of
cerebral-based functioning.

         Dr. McDonough has been in the practice of neuropsychology and psychology since the late-1970s/early-1980s and has been licensed to practice since 1992 across several states.  His neuropsychological assessments (involving both pediatric
and adults) have covered assessment of brain injury, toxicity, the dementias (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Picks, etc), strokes, tumors, learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD; for patients referred by neurologists, neurosurgeons, pediatricians and primary care physicians, attorneys and school districts.
