Forensic neuropsychological evaluations are similar to clinical neuropsychological evaluations, but specifically focused on answering legal questions in context of a civil or criminal case. They typically include a much larger set of collateral information to integrate with test data. In addition, evaluation services include consulting with attorneys and other referral sources to optimally utilize evaluation information. Typically forensic evaluations require more comprehensive record review as well as assessment of effort or response bias.
