What is a Cognitive Assessment?
A Cognitive Assessment is a detailed assessment of your child’s abilities, academic functioning and strengths and weaknesses in areas such as verbal and non-verbal intelligence, speed of information processing and memory. It identifies how your child functions intellectually and their unique abilities profile, to help you and those supporting your child understand how to help them reach their potential.
How can a Cognitive Assessment be helpful?
Some parents may want to identify their child’s cognitive profile to understand how best to support their academic journey and other parents may have specific concerns about their child’s learning. These may be about their child’s overall school performance or concerns around certain aspects of learning. Some children may have a physical health condition which could impact their neurological functioning or have Neurodevelopmental issues such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity (ADHD) or social communication difficulties such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families want to learn how this impacts on their child’s learning. The report will give tailored recommendations and suggestions to help you and your child’s school to understand how best to support their learning.
