Cognitive Assessments

Assessments for Cognitive Functioning are accepted by referral only.  This typically involves a range of tasks over a period of 2 to 3 hours.  An assessment of Cognitive Functioning is often accompanied by other forms of assessment, such as Adaptive Functioning.  Both Adaptive Functioning and Intellectual Functioning assessments are required for formal diagnosis of conditions such as intellectual disability.  At this stage, we only accept referrals for those over the age of 16 years.  Enquire about this service here.
