Neuropsychological Evaluations: Guiding Treatment for Autism and Epilepsy

HOSTED BY THE FAMILY RESOURCE NETWORK

Neuropsychologists play a critical role in characterizing the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning of individuals with developmental concerns. This is particularly important for individuals who present with unique “dual diagnosis” profiles such as those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and epilepsy. But what does the data generated from such an evaluation mean and how can it be used as a tool for making treatment decisions? This workshop will focus on providing an overview of what a neuropsychological evaluation entails and the value this type of assessment can have for individuals with autism and epilepsy. In addition, emphasis will be placed on how this information can be used to inform non-pharmacological treatment recommendations to optimize academic, social, and adaptive functions.

In this quick fact sheet, CNNH Neuropsychologist Hilary Murphy, PhD explains what executive functioning is, different executive functioning skills, and what these skills may look like or how they may be used in a home or school setting. It’s important to note that the significance of these skills increases with age as individuals are expected to take on additional academic and social responsibilities.
