Comprehensive Evaluations for Cognitive Functioning

Helping you can access daily support through the NDIS

Assistance with daily life is one of the NDIS services our dedicated support coordinators can help you access. It’s a holistic support service designed to empower you in your everyday routine, ensuring you can live your life as freely as possible.

A cognitive assessment is a comprehensive evaluation designed to measure an individual’s cognitive abilities, including memory, attention, problem-solving skills, and other aspects of thinking and learning. These assessments help in identifying strengths and weaknesses in cognitive functioning.

Cognitive assessments are important because they provide valuable insights into an individual’s cognitive abilities, which can guide educational planning, therapeutic interventions, and support services. They are crucial for diagnosing learning difficulties, developmental delays, and other cognitive-related issues.

Detailed Cognitive Assessments by Experienced Professionals

Our cognitive assessments are thorough evaluations conducted by licensed and experienced professionals. These assessments help in understanding an individual’s cognitive profile, ensuring that they receive the necessary support and interventions to enhance their cognitive functioning.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the cognitive assessment process involve?

If your child exhibits signs such as difficulty with social interactions, delayed speech or language skills, repetitive behaviours, or intense focus on specific interests, it may be beneficial to seek an ASD assessment. Consulting with your paediatrician or a specialist can help determine if an assessment is necessary.

The assessment process typically involves a series of evaluations conducted by a team of professionals, including psychologists, speech therapists, and occupational therapists. It includes interviews with parents, observation of the child, and standardised tests to assess various aspects of development and behaviour.

The duration of the assessment process can vary, but it generally takes several hours spread over multiple sessions. This allows for a comprehensive evaluation and ensures that all aspects of the child’s development and behaviour are thoroughly examined.

After the assessment is completed, you will receive a detailed report outlining the findings and recommendations. This report will guide the next steps, which may include specific therapies, educational support, and resources to help your child. The assessment team will also be available to discuss the results and answer any questions you may have.
