If you are in the legal or insurance professions, Invictus Health can tailor a neuropsychological assessment for your specific needs, include:

Sometimes after an injury, illness or period of leave from work, individual may experience changes in their thinking skills and or may find it difficult to return to work. We assist workers and their employers to understand someone’s cognitive strengths and weakness to guide recommendations to support return to work.

Living with and or supporting someone with a disability can be challenging and while there are support available these often require evidence of the nature and severity of a cognitive and/or psychological impairment. We work with individuals and those who support them to characterise a person's cognitive, emotional and behavioural function to produce evidence of a disability and provide appropriate recommendations to promote independence for the individual.

Our team of experienced neuropsychologists use their knowledge of the interaction between the brain and behaviour to help inform a parent’s ability to meet a child’s needs and provide safe, routine care for that child. Our detailed reports incorporate the parent’s understanding of the current family situation with factors that may be contributing to their ability to parent and or make positive change including the parent’s current cognitive and psychological functioning to inform their parenting capacity and identify strategies and recommendations to foster positive parenting skills.

We can all have trouble making the ‘right’ decision, however, it is often of no consequence which coloured bike we buy. Sometimes, people who have difficulties with their thinking skills, whether that be due to a head injury, stroke, intellectual disability or dementia, can have trouble remembering, understanding and using information to make a well-informed decision about important issues. For example; finances, medical, legal and ethical. Our assessments can be used to form part of an application for Guardianship or Enduring Power of Attorney made through the relevant State or Commonwealth Tribunal.
