Cognitive Assessments

Cognitive assessments are tools used to evaluate a child or young person's cognitive abilities, such as attention, memory, reasoning, language, and perception. These assessments are commonly used in clinical settings to diagnose cognitive impairment, neurological disorders, and other conditions that affect cognitive functioning.

Cognitive assessments may include standardized tests, such as the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), and Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children fifth edition (WISC-V), as well as clinical interviews and observation of the child or young person's behaviour and performance on everyday tasks. It is a formal assessment of a child or young person’s intelligence and abilities in areas such as verbal and non-verbal skills, memory and speed of processing information. The assessment involves several different tasks such as puzzles, answering questions and remembering certain things.  

Cognitive assessments can be useful in identifying cognitive strengths and weaknesses, monitoring cognitive changes over time, and developing treatment plans for individuals with cognitive impairment or neurological disorders. However, it's important to note that cognitive assessments are just one part of a comprehensive evaluation and should be interpreted in the context of other clinical information and the individual's overall functioning.
