Neuropsychological assessment and management

Due to high demand, we have now closed the waitlist for neuropsychological assessments. We will re-open if there is capacity to provide a neuropsychological assessment mid-2024.

A neuropsychological assessment includes an interview, followed by a range of tasks designed to test specific areas of thinking such as memory, attention, concentration, learning, planning, problem solving, and decision-making. The assessment includes completion of an interview, answering questions, paper and pencil tasks, puzzles and tests of memory.

The Clinic provides comprehensive neuropsychological assessments that usually take 2-3 hours over 2-3 sessions to complete. Breaks are taken during the sessions and the pace can be varied to suit the individual.

After the completion of the assessment, we will evaluate the results, taking into consideration the person's age, background, history and reason for referral. A report is written that outlines the findings of the assessment, plus recommendations for actions and strategies that will benefit the person. These results may then be discussed during a 'feedback session' with the person and the original referrer and/or those people supporting the person.

We provide comprehensive neuropsychological assessments for the following:

  • Memory problems
  • Concentration and attention problems
  • Strengths and difficulties in cognitive processing
  • Other neuropsychological problems

Please note, although our Clinic does offer a range of learning assessments, we are unable to provide a formal assessment and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at our clinic.

If ASD is suspected, we recommend contacting  Krongold Clinic (Monash University) or the Royal Children’s Hospital for a complete assessment.
