Our Psychological team routinely conduct Cognitive Assessments which are primarily intelligence assessments using the Wechsler Testing package:
- Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) (for ages 6 and up);
- Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) depending on the age of the individual;
- Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT)
Our professional team are also able to provide Assessments of Behaviour and Adaptive Functioning.
Cognitive Assessment involves assessing an individual usually as compared to same aged peers, along a number of different dimensions, to evaluate the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. It is most commonly seen in areas of intelligence, academic achievement, behaviour, adaptive functioning (or living/life skills) and some other specialised areas
