Cognitive Assessment for Childhood Development

Unlocking the potential of young minds begins with early assessment of cognitive development. By gaining insights into your child's cognitive abilities from the start, parents and caregivers are equipped to implement targeted interventions and offer vital support, laying a strong foundation for their child's growth and wellbeing.

Understanding Cognitive Assessment:

A cognitive assessment can provide valuable insights into your child's cognitive skills, such as language, problem-solving, and reasoning. It also evaluates perceptual abilities, visual-motor coordination, attention span, and the ability to process and recall information. This assessment covers various aspects including attention, memory, and problem-solving abilities, as well as behavioral observations, offering a comprehensive overview of your child's intellectual capabilities.

We will conduct assessments using UK-based internationally recognized tools. These assessments will involve a variety of tasks, including:

  • Verbal comprehension:It evaluates the understanding and expression of verbal information and thoughts.
  • Perceptual reasoning: It assesses the capability to organize and reason with visual data and solve visual problems.
  • Working memory: It measures the capacity to retain and manipulate verbal information.
  • Processing speed: It examines the ability to quickly and accurately scan, process, and identify information.
