Frequently Asked Questions

A neuropsychology assessment involves multiple stages. The time you will spend with the Neuropsychologist will take, on average, between 3-4 hours. From there the Neuropsychologist will collect data and write up the report, this can take anywhere between 8-12 hours, the report is usually ready to be released within 2-3 weeks of the appointment date.

The great news is that preparing for an assessment is not as complex as it may seem. We recommend that you get a good night's rest and make sure that you have eaten before attending. If your routine includes medication, please ensure your routine remains as constant as possible in the lead up to the assessment.

Although we can’t tell you exactly what will be asked, we can say that the assessment includes 2 sections. The first is the interview stage, where you and the Neuropsychologist will discuss topics of interest. The second is the ‘pen and paper’ stage where the cognitive testing happens.

Psychology focuses on emotionality and behavioural traits, a psychology assessment could be looking into the potential of psychological injury induced by stress for example. In neuropsychology we are looking more specifically at cognitive capacity, analysing common brain functions, such as memory, attention, concentration, learning, problem solving and decision making.
