Neuropsychological Evaluation Tests
The neuropsychological evaluation results are in. They are extensive and very detailed. We'll look at them over the course of a couple of posts. Before we delve into the results, I thought I'd share the tests the clinician used to return the results we now have.
The tests administered were as follows:
- Mini-Mental State Exam
- Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale–IV (WAIS-IV)
- Wechsler Memory Scale-R (WMS-R)
- Controlled Word Association Test (FAS)
- Boston Naming Test (PDF Link)
- Street-Gestalt Test
- Bender Gestalt Test
- Rey Complex Figure Test
- Visual-Motor Integration Test
- Hooper Visual Organization Test
- Conners’ Continuous Performance Test-II (CPT-II V.5)
- Trail Making Test
- Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST)
- Category Test (Long Form)
- Beck Depression Inventory (BDI)
- Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI)
- Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI)
- Incomplete Sentences Blank-Adult Form
- Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
In addition to those tests, the clinician had access to the clinical reports from an evaluation one in 2000 as well as reports dating back to 1978.
I'm disappointed that the clinician who performed this evaluation did not do the Dementia Screening Questionnaire for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities or the Assessments for Adults with Developmental Disabilities (PDF Link). The tests above are geared for the regular population; not the intellectually disabled. One, the Connors' Continuous Performance Test, is normally used in the evaluation of children with ADHD.
