One of the advantages of neurological assessment is that it can accurately detect neurological damage or dysfunction without the need for obtrusive medical tests. However, some limitations should be kept in mind:
1. To perform neuropsychological assessments well, you must be a thoroughly trained professional.
2. The results of a neuropsychological assessment are not an absolute score or completely accurate proof. You must use results along with data that are compiled from many different sources.
3. Many experts question the validity of basic norms of neuropsychological assessment because the norms were originally derived from groups that were predominantly adults; only a very small sample of children were represented in the populations that were studied to produce the norms.
4. Neuropsychological assessment batteries are long and extremely time consuming when used in their complete form.
