Neuropsychological Rehabilitation

Mobirise

What is the service?

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation focuses on strengthening various cognitive functions and, consequently, improving one's quality of life. Neuropsychological Rehabilitation is an umbrella service that encompasses various other services and therapeutic approaches. The combination of those different elements assists us in approaching an issue in a holistic manner.

As a rule, Neuropsychological Rehabilitation relies on the results of the Neuropsychological Assessment, in order for the therapist to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the individual being treated, as well as, his or her preferences and interests and adapt the intervention appropriately.

At Noesis Center we believe that every person is unique and thus, our Rehabilitation programmes are adaped to the needs of our customers.
