We invite some people to complete assessments. It is not an exam, but it helps us to understand your cognitive abilities; that is, skills such as problem-solving, attention and memory skills, and identify anywhere we might be able to help.
We usually ask you to do tests with a pencil and paper. Most people find some bits easy and some bits difficult. If you wear glasses or hearing aids, please wear them for the appointment. Please let us know if you have any difficulties with reading, writing, hearing or your vision.
The assessment can take up to two hours and sometimes we will split this into three appointments. You only have to do the test once. Afterwards, we will discuss the assessment with you and think about how we could help. We will also send a report to your doctor.
