Neuropsychological disorders affect individuals of all ages. They impact normal brain functioning and can be caused by injury or illness. As a medical neuropsychologist, Dr. Bolter treats a variety of neurological conditions, such as ADHD, bipolar disorder, Autism, dementia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, psychiatric disorders, brain tumor, stroke, and traumatic brain injury.
Dr. Bolter and the team of specialists with The NeuroMedical Center’s neuropsychology department conduct a thorough neuropsychological assessment that evaluates cognition and behavior functioning, such as attention, memory, visual and auditory processes, language skills, emotional development, self-awareness and social skills, motor functions, and sensory processing.
Once dysfunctions in neurological processes are identified, Dr. Bolter works together with a multidisciplinary team of neuropsychology experts to develop a customized course of treatment together with patients and their families. Depending on each patient’s condition and unique needs, our treatment methods may involve psychotherapy, cognitive remediation, rehabilitation, and medication, and are focused on restoring and improving cognitive or behavioral functioning.
