What To Think About
This type of testing can cost $1,000 or more, and your insurance may not cover it.
Testing can answer questions you may have about your future, such as:
- Can I live alone?
- Is it safe for me to drive?
- Do I need to change jobs?
Another type of psychological testing is mental health assessment. It focuses more on your emotions and behavior, while neuropsychological testing focuses more on your ability to think, reason, and remember. For more information, see the topic Mental Health Assessment.
