What is Cognitive Testing? 

Cognitive testing, or neuropsychological assessment, is an in-depth assessment into a person’s cognitive functioning. This includes assessing one’s intellect, problem-solving and reasoning skills, attention and concentration, learning and memory, language abilities, visuo-spatial skills, and motor and sensory skills.


Cognitive testing can help in the diagnosis of a range of conditions, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), specific learning disorders (SLD), intellectual disability (ID), giftedness and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It can also provide an individualised strengths-and-weaknesses profile to guide treatment and provide recommendations for interventions where required.


Our psychologists will meet with you to understand your concerns and history, then conduct the testing based on your needs. Testing sessions are typically 1 on 1, and you will be required to complete several standardised tasks. Following testing, you will be provided with feedback on your results and an individualised report. 

Contact us for more details about what is involved in neuropsychological testing.
