THE CENTER FOR COGNITION, EMOTION & BEHAVIOR was founded by Dr. Vyas and focuses on providing high quality and individualized neuropsychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults and geriatrics. The purpose of such evaluations is to assess the full range of cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning of individuals.
OUR OBJECTIVE is to analyze an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, while understanding specific goals or needs, in order to formulate and deliver the best possible care. Results of the neuropsychological evaluation are used to identify empirically validated and research-based treatment modalities customized to the specific goals or needs of individuals and aimed at enhancing their functioning in a variety of environments (e.g. school, workplace, home, professional or social situations).
- Results of neuropsychological evaluations are delivered diligently and expeditiously to assist the individual, parents and family, teachers, healthcare providers, etc. to achieve the desired goal or to rehabilitate the issue at hand.
- Findings are communicated via a report that details all results (including diagnostic impressions) and distinct treatment recommendations.
- Follow-up consultations and referral resources are provided upon request. If desired, consultations are also offered to relevant third parties (e.g. treatment professionals, doctors, school representatives) in order to ensure an efficient and effective implementation process.
OUR METHODOLOGY combines a developmental perspective – assessing brain functioning through various stages of life – with a holistic approach – analyzing cognition (i.e. thoughts), emotion and behavior. This combination provides a more informed understanding of individuals’ specific needs and consequently allows for more specialized and targeted treatment.
OUR PROMISE is to deliver high quality results in a personal and caring environment. Confidentiality, courtesy, and respect are of utmost importance to me.
