Too often individuals suffering from a TIA and/or stroke do not seek the services of a neuropsychologist or benefit of a neuropsychological evaluation to document any problems in functioning following these types of events. Such an evaluation would serve as a baseline to document the impact of any additional events as well as an entry point to begin cognitive treatment or brain training to treat any deficits that may emerge following these types of events. This is in essence the benefit of preventative care and the options available. The point being that although it may appear that an individual has recovered physically from this type of event they may be affected emotionally and cognitively as well as able to benefit from treatment.
