Brain Injury Assessment involves the integration of medical findings, neuropsychological test findings, history, personality, motivational factors and an understanding of the skills and demands the individual must face.

Our main offices are in Gainesville and Ocala, though forensic out-of-town evaluations can be made by arrangement.
Clinical Psychology Associates of North Central Florida, has more than 20 years of experience in the neuropsychological assessment of brain injury involving adults, adolescents and children. We specialize in comprehensive assessments which often require 2-3 days of interview and neuropsychological testing. We believe in an approach which is sensitive to detecting deficits in memory, executive functions, motor skills, attention and higher cognitive functions as well as sensitive to detecting issues which may impact on test validity and other factors which can influence performance.
We have a tradition of performing such assessments in the forensic arena, and strive to maintain a relative balance of plaintiff-referred and defense-referred neuropsychological IME evaluations.
