Neuropsychological Testing in Arlington Heights, Illinois
At NeuroHealth Arlington Heights, we offer pediatric and adult neuropsychological testing. This type of assessment measures skills and abilities linked to specific brain functions attributed to the age group. During the neuropsychological testing process, our specialists assess functions such as memory, attention, problem-solving, visual-spatial skills, communication, and social skills. Our neuropsychologists will evaluate the assessment based on the child or adult’s specific issues and develop a plan to address their strengths and weaknesses. Having neuropsychological testing can help the individual develop their full potential, academically, emotionally, and socially.

Concussion Assessments in Arlington Heights, Illinois
If your child, adolescent, or teenager participates in sports, they run the risk of getting a concussion, which is a brain injury caused by a blow to the head. After seven to 10 days, post-concussive syndrome symptoms may appear and include:
- Trouble sleeping.
- Difficulty concentrating.
- Sensitivity to light or noise.
- Depression or anxiety.
If your family member experiences a blow to the head, schedule an appointment with NeuroHealth Arlington Heights as soon as possible so we can assess if they have post-concussive syndrome. While there’s no treatment for post-concussive syndrome, we can assess and treat associated emotional symptoms such as depression or anxiety.
