The treatment provided at NSO is specialized in that we view an individual’s presentation from a brain-based perspective. Each individual receives treatment that is customized to his or her unique needs and the reason for referral. When engaging in brief psychotherapy or cognitive rehabilitation, clear and concise goals are established and these goals are continually monitored to ensure that progress is made.

Services Offered Include:

Neuropsychological and Psychological Evaluations
A neuropsychological evaluation is a way to assess how an individual’s brain is functioning. Tests given during an evaluation assess areas of cognitive functioning such as language, attention, memory, problems solving, and visual spatial abilities. Emotional functioning is also evaluated to assist with clarification regarding the impact of current emotional status on cognitive functioning. The tests are not invasive. Most of the tests will involve questions-and-answers, as well as working with materials on a table. Some tests will involve the use of a computer, and only basic computer skills are needed.

Brief Psychotherapy
Counseling may be provided to assist individuals and their family members in learning strategies to cope with the cognitive and emotional difficulties in the individual’s daily environment.

Patient and Family Education
Information may be provided to educate individuals and/or their family members about their current symptom presentation, diagnosis, and treatment. Helpful information about “what to expect” given the individual’s diagnosis is provided.

Cognitive Rehabilitation
Cognitive rehabilitation is used to assist individuals restore weakened or impaired cognitive functioning and/or assist with learning compensatory strategies to cope with areas of weakness or impairment. This treatment is typically started after the completion of a complete neuropsychological evaluation. The results of the neuropsychological evaluation are used to develop an individualized treatment plan. At NSO we work with our patients to implement high-quality, empirically-supported interventions that may improve the lives of our patients.
