At The Corvallis Clinic, we provide evaluations and treatment plans for various neurodevelopmental, cognitive, and psychological conditions. Our Neuropsychologists work to assist with the behavioral treatment of multiple disorders or medical reasons that disrupt brain function. Our goal is to help our patients and their families find answers to what they are experiencing and develop realistic treatment plans that will work with their individual needs.
Neuropsychology studies the intricate relationship between the mind, behavior, and brain functioning. These relationships can be applied to the diagnosis of brain disorders, assessment of cognitive and behavioral functioning, and the design of effective treatment. Our Neuropsychologists specialize in assessing various thinking skills, such as memory, spatial integration, attention, problem-solving skills, and language abilities.

Comprehensive evaluations are completed to assess cognitive strengths and weaknesses related to cognitive functioning, medical complexities, learning abilities, and mental health functioning. These evaluations can provide diagnostic clarity, such as dementia or mild cognitive impairment. Evaluations can also be helpful for treatment planning for those who have suffered from brain injuries, such as stroke or a traumatic brain injury. Pediatric evaluations can help delineate cognitive contributors to everyday learning, behavioral, or emotional difficulties.
Some of the causes of brain dysfunction that we can evaluate are:
- Memory disorders (like Alzheimer’s dementia)
- Injury-induced memory and cognitive functioning disorders (relating to concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and stroke)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Movement disorders (like Parkinson’s disease)
- Neurodevelopmental disorders (like autism or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
- Learning disorders
- Neurobehavioral difficulties secondary to genetic conditions (like Trisomy X syndrome)
- Psychiatric conditions impacting thinking ability (depression, anxiety, PTSD)
- Prenatal substance exposure
