What is the difference between a neuropsychologist and a neuropsychiatrist?

0

A neuropsychiatrist is a medical doctor who is a specialist in diagnosing and treating psychiatric changes co-occurring with ABI, with medication and/or counselling. A neuropsychiatrist may refer you to other health care providers (OT, SLP, SW, psychologist, etc) for additional assistance. A neuropsychologist may assess your cognition, or thinking skills, to help determine specific areas requiring therapy, and may also provide counselling and education regarding ABI.
