This is a comprehensive assessment of cognitive function, including memory, intellect and problem-solving. It would be appropriate in cases where there was an acquired or developmental difficulty. For example, traumatic brain injury and learning disorders would be the main categories.

We will write a detailed report for you to submit as part of the NDIS assessment process.

Our psychologists are focused on helping the assessment process to be a pleasant and enjoyable one. We will provide a detailed report to submit as part of the assessment process.
