A Neuropsychological assessment involves answering some questions and completing some tests with a psychologist. The tests may involve looking at memory, learning, planning, attention and concentration, executive functioning as well as a person's psychological status.
A Neuropsychological assessment is normally carried out by a specialist psychologist who looks at aspects of cognition and behaviour, including examining the effects of any brain injury or neuropathological process that a person may have experienced. This type of assessment is often appropriate in circumstances where a person may have suspected injury or impairment of brain functioning.
A neuropsychological usually takes up to 4 hours to complete and sessions can be split up according to a persons’ requirements. Feedback is usually provided following the assessment and results are interpreted and presented in a detailed report. The whole process can take up to 10-12 hours and may depend on the amount of documents that we have to review and the amount of cognitive testing required.
