Your primary physician may order a neuropsychological assessment to determine if a patient has any behavioral, cognitive or learning issues. A neuropsychological assessment is conducted in our comfortable clinic by a clinical neuropsychologist.
Learning disabilities, Cognitive or behavioral issues are often misdiagnosed or ignored. Only a clinically trained neuropsychologist has the specialised training and skills to determine the specific problem and its remedy.
Common learning disabilities include ADD, ADHD and dyslexia. Cognitive problems encompass AAMI(age associated memory impairment), Alzheimer disease, Lewy Body dementia, Frontal lobe disorders and Picks Disease.
Having a learning disability is nothing to be ashamed about. They have become increasingly common and can be controlled when properly treated. Through a series of tests, your neuropsychologist will first determine if a disability exists, and, if so the recommended course of treatment. These neuropsychological tests include memory games, puzzles and quizzes and are administered in a fun, relaxed and caring environment.
You can expect the assessment to take approximately 2 to 4 hours. Complimentary beverages are available. Call (03) 9791 1599 or schedule an online appointment today for your neuropsychology assessment.
