What is the Cognitive Assessment Process?

Our whole assessment package includes:

Review of Background Information

Information will be gathered regarding your cognitive, developmental, medical, academic, social, family and emotional history. This information ensures a more accurate interpretation of test results.

Depending on what is being tested, other specific information may need to be gathered using additional scales, clinical interviews and observations.

Completion of Standardised Assessment

A cognitive assessment is conducted to determine your overall intellectual functioning and abilities. This may include assessment of:

  • Verbal Skills
  • Nonverbal/Visual Skills
  • Logical thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Working Memory -ability to learn, attend, concentrate and remember auditory and visual information
  • Visual Processing

Assessment Report

The report will consist of:

  • A summary of the background information provided
  • Testing observations
  • Explanation and definition of the tests used
  • Test results
  • Interpretation of results and diagnosis (if applicable)
  • Recommendations

Recommendations and Verbal Feedback

Recommendations are provided that are evidence-based and relevant to your needs, original goals, and questions.

The results are explained to you in a way that makes them easier to comprehend.

What can cognitive assessment results be used for?

Cognitive (IQ) assessments explore factors which may be affecting a person's academic achievement, vocational achievement, or general day to day functioning. 

The results can help to diagnose or determine:

- Intellectual Disability

- Learning Potential

-Cognitive Impairments/Delays

- Underachievement

- G​iftedness

- Vocational/Academic Capacity

- Working Memory Problems

A person's cognitive abilities (IQ) can be assessed to determine particular learning styles and strengths and weaknesses. Provided recommendations can be passed onto teachers or employers. It can be beneficial for teachers to teach to your child's preferred learning style (as everyone learns differently). The information can assist with individual learning plans at school. 

Cognitive tests are used to assess students with severe learning difficulties to determine if they meet the eligibility criteria to apply for school based disability funding and support (through state, catholic and independent school systems).

Employers can understand your skills and limitations for more appropriate work placement and expectations. If you are being supported by carers or family, the results can help others to understand your capabilities and set more realistic goals and expectations.
