MWM or others- I keep hearing here (I think) that there is a difference between a neuropsychologist and a psychologist, phd. A psychiatric, phd, did neuropsychologist testing on my difficult child almost 3 years ago- at least that is what is says on the report in very big bold letters. However, she told me that since she works with difficult child's psychiatrist, she did not diagnosis psychiatric disorders, including but not limited to bipolar. I looked in phone book and online for licensed providers in virginia and I can't find a neuropsychologist listed under mental health care providers or health care providers. I see psychologists listed and neurologists listed. Is it just that my state doesn't have a separate classification for neuropsychs? Am I looking in the wrong place? If it's a psychiatric phd licensed to do neuropsychologist testing, is it the same thing? It was the costly LONG testing that she did, however, I can't swear that she did ALL tests.
