Perhaps you have always struggled in school and are now in college and still struggling. Maybe you had an illness or accident that affected your cognitive functioning, and now find that you are not able to keep a job or a significant relationship. Maybe you had a chronic medical condition that affected your memory and problem-solving abilities. These are some of the reasons that one may come to see a neuropsychologist.

Additional information might be gathered through collateral sources such as physicians, parents, significant others, or friends. Relevant documentation can also be reviewed.
