On With Life offers neuropsychological evaluation and consultation services on an outpatient basis for people living with a brain injury or other central nervous system dysfunction. Through the process of neuropsychological evaluation, a neuropsychologist studies brain-behavior interactions, the health of the individual's brain, and the problems that brain dysfunction can cause.
Dr. David Demarest and Dr. Allison Logemann use scientific techniques to determine preexisting characteristics of the individual and provide an index of the extent and type of changes brought about by the injury or condition. All evaluations include a comprehensive, detailed neuropsychological report and are provided in a quick, timely manner. An assessment of this type documents the patient's functional strengths and weaknesses and an evaluation is made regarding:
Deficiencies caused by brain damage versus preexisting cognitive weaknesses
Strengths in cognitive and psychosocial skills
Comprehensive diagnostic understanding of the biopsychosocial impact of the injury
Extent of the brain injury and prognosis for recovery
The specific course of action needed for best therapy planning
Predictions and recommendations for independence in work, school, and home
"As a Neuropsychologist, my goal is to help individuals that I work with, and those who refer to me, answer questions pertaining to the condition of the patient's brain and the difficulties they are presenting with," explains Dr. Demarest.
