Silicon Valley Assessment provides tailored clinical and forensic neuropsychological evaluations for adolescents and adults.

 

Dr. Maya Yutsis and Dr. Lauren Drag are board-certified neuropsychologists with extensive specialty training in neuropsychology, the study of brain and behavior relationships.

Our neuropsychological evaluations are designed to provide an objective, comprehensive assessment of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. We have extensive training and expertise with a range of medical, neurological, developmental, and psychological conditions. Given the diversity of the clients we see, we adopt a one-size-does-not-fit-all approach and work closely with each client to tailor each assessment to directly answer the questions being asked. Looking beyond just the scores, we integrate multiple sources of information to obtain a well-rounded, holistic picture of each client. Our goal is to identify the many possible factors that may be affecting functioning at home, work, or school and then provide detailed, individualized recommendations to help each client achieve his or her maximum potential.
