Understanding Cognitive Assessments

Standardised tools used to evaluate an individual’s cognitive abilities, such as memory, attention, reasoning, and problem-solving skills. These assessments are designed to measure various aspects of intellectual functioning and are administered in a structured manner by our psychologists. By analysing performance on tasks and comparing results to age and population norms, cognitive assessments provide valuable insights into an individual’s strengths and weaknesses. They are used in clinical settings to diagnose cognitive impairments, learning disabilities, and developmental disorders, as well as in educational settings to inform instructional strategies and support services. Overall, cognitive assessments play a critical role in understanding and enhancing cognitive functioning across different stages of life.

Type of Assessments:

  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V).
  • Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT-III)
  • Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-IV).
