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 specialized 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 of. 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.
