To meet the wide range of needs in relation to a neuropsychological assessment we offer two broad levels of assessment, structured to address different requirements of doctors, lawyers or other referring agencies.

 

Brief Cognitive Assessment

A brief cognitive assessment includes a clinical interview and standardised evaluation of a briefer range of cognitive abilities than a comprehensive evaluation. This generally includes an overview of visual intellectual functioning, perceptual reasoning, information processing speed, attention, working memory, visual and verbal memory functioning, and some brief measures of executive functioning. Following the assessment, a summary will be provided (generally 1 page long) with a brief description of the assessment results and some general recommendations. This type of assessment is usually insufficient to include an opinion regarding diagnosis or prognosis. It may be suitable for a repeat assessment once a diagnosis has been established, or when a clinical diagnosis is not required.
