There are 2,000,000 brain injuries per year and most of the injuries are not properly treated. The most common consequences of traumatic head injury are cognitive impairment and changes in personality and emotional sensitivity. Dependent on the nature and the severity of the injury, such impairments may involve acquired deficits in attention, organization, memory, the ability to solve new problems, and monitor one’s own behavior and emotions.
A neuropsychological evaluation will involve assessments of the following:
- Memory problems
- Learning new things
- Visual spatial skills
- Executive functioning
- Academic abilities
- Personality and emotional issues
