Sometimes individuals who have experienced a concussion or TBI report problems remembering, slowed thinking, or difficulty paying attention.

A Neuropsychologist is trained to look closely at your medical history and symptoms; and administer tests to look at memory, attention, and other aspects of your thinking. They put all this information together in a report and make recommendations about what kind of treatment you might need, and which services might be most helpful to you. For Concussion/TBI or Neuropsychological Screenings Neuropsychological screenings for current Veteran or Active Military students at UCCS or PPCC are offered at the Veterans Health and Trauma Clinic. This service may be offered at no cost to you. At your request, your test results can be shared with other service providers (such as UCCS Disabilities Services) to provide the documentation you need for academic accommodations. More comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation are also available at

the VHTC. Cost may be covered by your insurance, copay may apply. Sponsored by the Military and Veterans Pathways to Success (MVPS) program funded by The Anschutz Foundation. For more information, or to schedule an evaluation, please contact the Veterans Health and Trauma Clinic, 719 255-8003; fax: 719 255-8075. Contact is Lisa Barker, Ph.D. UCCS HealthCircle
