Neuropsychology and Psychology Services at Frazier Rehab
What We Do
The Department of Psychology and Neuropsychology Services offers comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessment and treatment services for individuals with a range of medical, neurological, degenerative, genetic, and other disorders. Services are aimed at helping patients and their family or caregivers understand diagnoses, maximize functioning, and maintain quality of life.
Patients may be referred for services by their physician during their acute inpatient rehabilitation process or on an outpatient basis to facilitate adjustment along the continuum of care. Assessment and therapy services are a standard component of many of our programs, including brain injury, stroke, and spinal cord . Our team of experts helps patients and families navigate and overcome the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges associated with various medical diagnoses to optimize physical and emotional well-being.
Individualized Neuropsychological Evaluations
Neuropsychological assessments are tailored to an individual’s needs and referral questions. Assessments generally involve review of an individual’s developmental, medical, educational, and family history, a clinical interview with the patient/caregiver(s), and formal psychometric testing. Evaluations are available for patients ranging from pediatric to geriatric age ranges who have known or suspected brain dysfunction stemming from a wide variety of neurological conditions, including but not limited to:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Memory Loss
- Dementia and Neurodegenerative Diseases
- Parkinson’s Disease and other Movement Disorders
- Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
- Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease
- Toxic-Metabolic syndromes
- Concussion, including Sports-Related Injuries
- Pre/Post-Surgical Evaluations
Formal testing may include measures of the following:

Health and Behavior Therapy
Therapy services are also individualized to address psychological, cognitive, behavioral, somatic, and/or social disturbances associated with wide range of medical diagnoses or conditions. An important component of therapy for many individuals is providing injury/illness education to help prepare patients and their families to transition to the community with maximal cognitive, emotional, and social functioning and independence. Therapy often involves patients and their families. Frequency and duration of services varies according to individual needs and goals.
