Neuropsychology plays a key role in guiding Pate’s rehabilitation program. In brain injury rehabilitation, the goal is to use this scientific knowledge to help create a program specific to each patient’s needs in order to create the best opportunity for recovery and independence.
Testing & Evaluation
This critical evaluation helps identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses in brain functioning to guide treatment recommendations. Tests measure all aspects of brain functioning including cognitive skills, motor functioning and emotional functioning (which can be vulnerable to changes after various types of brain injuries and medical complications.)
The assessment involves a review of records provided, interview with the neuropsychologist, interview with family/friends in person or via phone if needed, and formal testing. The testing portion will vary in length depending on the reason for the evaluation. Testing is usually completed within one day, but may be broken up between two days if fatigue is a factor or other problems arise. Breaks are provided as needed. Please bring any needed prescribed medications, glasses, hearing aid or other devices that will allow you to perform your best during testing.
Pate Rehab does not provide neuropsychological evaluations for the following:
- Late Onset Dementia (65+ years old)
- Forensic evaluations
- Children aged 15 and younger
Driver Rehabilitation Training and Evaluation
Pate’s driver rehabilitation training program employs Driver Rehabilitation Specialists certified by the Association for Driver Rehabilitation Services (ADED). The program is included at no-cost for all our patients who medically qualify and is also available to those outside of our care for a reasonable fee.
Driver Rehabilitation Treatment
The Pate driver rehabilitation program plan includes an initial driving evaluation on the road with a driver rehabilitation specialist to assess the individual’s current skills, and address any deficits that may require adaptive equipment. Our specialists then provide real, on the road training in one of Pate’s specially outfitted driver rehabilitation cars.

- Must have a physician’s order stating the patient is medically, physically, and cognitively able to drive
- Must require only low-tech adaptive equipment in order to drive (hand controls, spinner knobs, or other equipment that can be mechanically added)
*Pate’s Driving Program is not designed for patients who need high-tech adaptive equipment, such as voice activated systems or head-controlled units.
