A Neuropsychological Assessment explores strengths and vulnerabilities in the domains of thinking/cognition, memory, emotional regulation and processing speed to identify if there are any areas of concern. The cluster of assessment tools is used to identify impairment triggered by traumatic brain injury (TBI), cognitive decline or developmental issues, dementia and other neuropsychological conditions. It helps us pinpoint the areas where you might need the most support.
There are four parts to neuropsychological testing – the initial interview which outlines the areas of concern; a session where you undertake a series of tabletop tasks to assess your performance across several domains; data analysis, where your psychologist will evaluate the results, and preparation and writing of the report.
Following the assessment process, our team will work with you to develop a treatment and/or therapy plan to provide you with ongoing help and support.
Common areas targeted in a Neuropsychological Assessment include:
- Mental Flexibility
- Mental Switching
- Processing Speed
