About Neuropsychology

What is a Clinical Neuropsychologist?

Clinical Neuropsychologists are psychologists who specialise in understanding the relationships between brain functioning, cognition, and behaviour. Clinical Neuropsychologists investigate how brain dysfunction impacts on thinking, learning and behaviour. The kinds of conditions seen by Clinical Neuropsychologists include Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), genetic disorders, epilepsy, metabolic disorders, learning difficulties (including dyslexia) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

What does an assessment involve?

Neuropsychological assessment provides a detailed profile of the client’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses. Skills assessed would generally include general intellectual ability (or ‘IQ’), attention and concentration, and learning and memory. For school aged children and adolescents, assessment also generally covers literacy and numeracy skills.

A detailed neuropsychological assessment may take several hours and be conducted over a number of sessions.
