What is Neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology is the study of brain-behavior relationships. A neuropsychologist has generalized training in clinical psychology as well as specialized training in neuroanatomy, brain development, and neurological syndromes. A neuropsychological evaluation combines clinical interview and standardized assessment to make diagnoses, clarify cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and assist patients (and their families) with developing a plan for the future. Dr. Bowker’s training includes specialized post-doctoral training in neuropsychology at Mary Free Bed Hospital and Rehabilitation Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She is the only neuropsychologist in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek area that is board certified in clinical neuropsychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology and has been practicing in the area since 2000.

Our Services

Dr. Bowker specializes in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a broad range of psychological disorders associated with conditions affecting the brain. Sandra Bowker and Associates offers neuropsychological assessment and, when needed, follow up treatment to address concerns identified as a result of the evaluation. Our services are available by appointment only.

If the identified patient is a minor, both the patient and a legal guardian must be present for this appointment.

Testing and Evaluation

Testing will only be conducted after a comprehensive consultation has been completed. Not every patient will be tested. Together with the provider, you will determine if testing is necessary and, if so, how much testing will be necessary to answer the referral question (s). The amount of time required for testing varies from patient to patient; the length of testing will be determined at the initial consultation according to the doctor’s observations and referral question (s).
