What is Dr. Hogansen’s evaluation philosophy?
“I have a great appreciation for the human brain, particularly how the brain develops over time. I believe that neurocognitive evaluations are one of the best options for gathering insight into how the brain functions. The information gathered in this type of evaluation helps us understand how an individual perceives the world around them and often helps us understand why an individual behaves in certain ways. This information can then be used to identify strategies and tools to optimize a person’s well-being.
Neurocognitive evaluations can be used to determine an accurate diagnosis, if appropriate. Diagnoses are often helpful for identifying treatment suggestions. The results of the neurocognitive evaluation, however, can also be used to identify individualized recommendations based on the patterns of brain functioning identified in the data.
Ultimately, these evaluations provide parents with information about how to best support their child’s growth and development. For individuals, they are provided information to support them in understanding themselves more fully so they can reach their goals.”
