With most children living and learning full-time from home at some stage during COVID-19, parents may have had increased exposure to their child’s development. This may have has raised concerns about their learning, cognitive skills, emotional functioning or behaviour. A neuropsychology assessment can help to assess, address and support these concerns as early as possible, which can have lifelong benefits for the child.
A Neuropsychologist develops a breadth of information to support families whose children (up to 16 years old) may be experiencing cognitive, learning, developmental, emotional, or behavioural difficulties.
A comprehensive Neuropsychological Assessment develops an understanding of a child’s cognitive skills (i.e. thinking, learning, and memory skills) and development, to provide a set of individualised recommendations and strategies to support a child in daily life, including at home and school.
Due to the complex nature of the brain and how it can affect behaviour and emotions, a Neuropsychologist can also play an important part in exploring what may be contributing to behavioural or emotional difficulties.
