CONSULT REQUEST GUIDELINES
Neuropsychological Evaluation
Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines

The Neuropsychology Clinic emphasizes comprehensive neuropsychological and psychological assessment for outpatients and inpatients across a wide age range. Common referrals include: academic concerns related to potential learning disabilities or ADHD, cognitive disorders related to neurological illness or general medical conditions, dementia evaluations, and cognitive manifestations of psychiatric disorders. For more information, refer to the clinic website: http://www.psych.med.umich.edu/neuropsy/

We do not provide evaluations of acute issues (e.g., very recent head injury or stroke). Patients with such histories should only be referred following a reasonable period of recovery.

We are a consultation service only and do not provide any treatment.

Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit Prior to referral, patients with untreated psychiatric concerns should complete an outpatient psychiatric/psychological evaluation and any recommended treatment.
Patient Education/Information (includes preps) For general information on neuropsychological evaluation and what to expect during the evaluation, please see the following brochures:
