Neuropsychological Assessment
A neuropsychological assessment provides a comprehensive profile of an individual’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and can help determine whether symptoms are organic (i.e., neurological) or non-organic (i.e., psychological).

A neuropsychological assessment takes 3 – 4 hours and includes tests of attention, language, learning and memory, visuo-spatial functioning, speed of information processing, intellectual functioning, and high-level executive functioning. These tests can aid with diagnosis of neurological conditions, rehabilitation and treatment planning, cognitive characterisation, vocational recommendations etc.
