Neuropsychological Assessments

A neuropsychological assessment involves analysing common brain functions, such as memory, attention, concentration, learning, problem solving and decision making. These assessments are particularly important to people who have been affected by cognitive changes as a result of a head injury, stroke, excessive alcohol use, excessive drug use, dementia and other conditions that may affect brain function.

Range of conditions assessed

During our assessments, our team is able to comprehensively and holistically assess thinking changes as a result of a large number of conditions, including;

Cognitive Domains Assessed

We assess a range of cognitive functionalities including;
  • Intellectual functioning
  • Language processing
  • Visuospatial processing
  • Attention & concentration
  • Verbal learning & memory
  • Visual learning & memory
  • Executive functions
  • Speed of processing
  • Sensory-perceptual functions
  • Motivation / symptom validity

What Can I Expect During A Neuropsychological Assessment?

  1. Firstly, we establish the reason for the referral/appointment – what is it that we are assessing? Are there any specific questions you’d like answered?
  2. We arrange an appointment at a time (and place) which suits you best.
  3. The assessment itself takes 3-4 hours and includes a comprehensive medical, personal and forensic background.
  4. During the assessment you will also undergo neuropsychological testing, which assesses your attention, concentration, memory, executive function, processing speed and visual/verbal skills.
  5. After the assessment, we will liaise with GP’s, medical and allied health professionals, legal representations, carers/support workers in order to obtain further information – this usually takes around an hour or so.
  6. We write our neuropsychological report, which takes approximately 5 hours to complete.
  7. A feedback session will be scheduled for you and your referrer (if applicable) to answer any questions and ensure that everything in the report is fully understood.

Private Neuropsychological Assessment Services & Testing In Melbourne

To deal with any issue concerning the brain, it is imperative to seek the assistance, insights and experience of professionals. Many people can live long healthy lives without ever experiencing any major functionality issues with their brain, while others see their lives change in the blink of an eye as a result of a traumatic injury. 

Those seeking a neuropsychological assessment in Melbourne will be pleased to learn that there is a team who are known for their ability to determine the problem and provide effective steps forward that address issues that may previously have proven difficult to identify.

Neuropsychology Assessment Services in Melbourne

That’s the team here at Jurmaine Health. At our clinics throughout Victoria, we afford our patients a friendly, professional approach that is designed to deliver clear reports as well as techniques, strategies and recommendations that will make moving forward with your condition more proactive and, ultimately, beneficial. 

A neuropsychological assessment allows Melbourne patients to learn how damage to the brain has a direct impact on the way that they engage with the world. A traumatic brain injury or any other kind of brain disorder can have a profound effect on day-to-day living, not only for the patient but for their extended family, too. As such, through assessment, we can determine how the issue affects actions and thoughts.

Clarifying the Issue With Neuropsychological Testing

At Jurmaine Health, our goal is to clarify what is happening for the person that requests neuropsychology testing. We have delivered our services for a range of different requirements over the past ten years and counting, so you can trust that we have the insight and capabilities to comprehensively assess the patient and provide a clear report that outlines our findings.

There is any number of reasons why a person presents with brain or functional problems. Among the huge number of different conditions that we assess in our brain health assessment include, but are not limited to the following: 

  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Asperger’s/Autism
  • PTSD
  • Schizophrenia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Concentration Problems
  • Memory Problems
  • Dementia
  • Concussion
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Decision-making Capacity
  • Alcohol and Drug Dependency
  • Stroke

Through neuropsych assessment, we intend to clarify what the problem is and then help the patient and their loved one’s plan for the recovery. Ultimately, everyone wants to engage as fully as they possibly can with the community that they live in, so guiding the rehabilitation process is a crucial part of the process. 

Understanding what has happened and what can be done is so important for the person affected as well as their family. It is also vital to know what to expect and where capacities still exist. Neuropsychological testing can breakdown where abilities remain unchanged and prepare patients for areas that currently no longer function as perhaps they were used to.
