Cognitive Assessments

Cognitive assessments are formal assessments to test the child's intelligence and abilities in the domains of verbal and non-verbal skills, memory and speed of processing information. These assessments are usually paper pencil tests that involve a number of different tasks such as puzzles, answering questions and remembering certain things.

The cognitive assessment is carried out by a qualified and licensed clinical psychologist, or a trainee clinical psychologist under the supervision of a qualified member of staff.
