Your child has been referred for a neuropsychological assessment at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) by your neurologist, paediatrician or GP. The neuropsychology team here specialises in assessing children's learning and behavioural difficulties that can arise from a neurological problem. This leaflet provides you with the information that you and your child need to know about the service that we offer.

Neuropsychiatry assessment

A psychiatrist with experience of Epilepsy surgery will see you and your child as part of the assessment. Emotional, behavioural and social problems can sometimes occur with epilepsy and it is important to identify these if present to make sure other needs are addressed. This can also be an opportunity to discuss the impact of the epilepsy on you and your child and aims and expectations around surgery.
