Neuropsychological Test

The neurologist-psych test helped identify previously undiagnosed ADHD (which the testing identified as low arousal ADHD) that was exacerbated by the concussion which explained the working memory not readily returning. it also helped explain the anxiety and frustration Tyler was experiencing in more concrete terms—ie his higher order language skills were compromised and his working memory in the neuro-psych test also was low. This testing happened a little after a month of his injury and offered us more specifics on what was going on with him cognitively and where his strengths remained and where his deficits were. The report was thorough and comprehensive. It at least gave us a jumping off point.
