Assessments of neurodivergence

Neurodivergence is a term used to describe the diverse range of cognitive abilities within the population. We all vary in terms of our cognitive skills, with our own strengths and relative areas of need. This means that we will find some tasks very easy, and others much more challenging.

 

Neurodivergent people tend to have marked differences between their areas of strength and areas of need. Whilst these differences can often lead to unique talents, it can also bring with it a number of difficulties. Some commonly reported challenges include:

  • Planning and organisation

  • Time-management

  • Sustaining attention

  • Recalling information

  • Working with a high degree of accuracy

  • Written and spoken communication

 

Without appropriate understanding, support and adjustments, some neurodivergent people might feel disabled by their difficulties.

A neuropsychological assessment will highlight your individual areas of strength and relative need, and will clarify whether you have a neurodivergent cognitive profile. An assessment can also diagnose particular neurodivergent conditions, such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Dyspraxia.

 

Whilst I do not diagnose Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism, the assessment will identify if you are at an increased risk of these neurodivergent conditions. 

 

Following the assessment, you will receive a diagnostic report which will include recommendations for reasonable adjustments (e.g. with your work or studies).
