Neuropsychological Evaluation for Veterans
Many veterans returning from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last several years have sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBI) – many from IED blasts – and may also be affected by PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder).
Returning veterans often find that these active duty injuries interfere with functioning in normal activities in work, school, and family life.
Our neuropsychologists have many years of experience in evaluating injured veterans. Neuropsychological evaluation can help a veteran and his or her family better understand the effects that TBI and PTSD may have on their lives.
Service-connected disability claims are sometimes substantiated by neuropsychological evaluations if an active duty injury has caused cognitive limitations.
We work with the Massachusetts Statewide Head Injury Program (SHIP) for evaluation of returning veterans. SHIP can be an important resource in helping veterans connect with services for TBI and PTSD.
