Q.  What types of funding do you accept?

     

     A.  Most clients are referred through the Department of Assistive & Rehabilitative Services (DARS).

          DARS is the state of Texas rehabilitation agency that assists persons with disabilities in the pursuit

          of their personal goals including returning to work, obtaining additional education, and independent

          living.  You can find the nearest DARS office by clicking on this link:  www.dars.state.tx.us .

          We also accept private payments including, cash, check, and credit card.

 

Q.  Do you accept insurance?

 

     A.  No, we no longer accept insurance payments.  The difficulty in obtaining pre-approval of services and

           the delay in getting payment from insurance companies has precluded us from using them as a viable

           funding source for our evaluations and rehabilitation services.

 

Q.  How do I get referred to your office?

 

     A.  Feel free to pick up the phone and let us assist you with the process.  Most clients are referred

           through DARS or through your medical doctor.

 

Q.  What is a neuropsychological evaluation?

 

      A.  A neuropsychological evaluation is a set of tests designed to evaluate mental functioning,

           emotional functioning, and cognitive functioning.  It generally takes one day, about 6 - 8 hours, to

           administer.

 

Q.  Who needs a neuropsychological evaluation?

 

     A.  A typical person who participates in a neuropsychological evaluation with our practice has

          experienced a traumatic brain injury or other neurological dysfunction.  The neuropsychological

          evaluation will provide comprehensive information about the person's ability to learn, their ability

          to cope, and their cognitive functioning.

 

 Q.  What is cognitive functioning?

 

     A.  Cognitive, as defined by Merriam-Webster.com, is "of, relating to, being, or involving conscious intellectual

           activity (as thinking, reasoning, or remembering) <cognitive impairment>".  Typical cognitive impairments from

           a traumatic brain injury are memory problems, slow speed of information processing, difficulty with

           multi-tasking, and difficulty modulating emotions.  There are many more types of cognitive

           impairments and this is the reason that persons with neurological difficulties need an individualized,

           comprehensive neuropsychological assessment.

 

Q.  What are your office hours?

 

      A.  8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on major holidays that we are closed.
