A neuropsychological assessment usually involves an initial interview, where your medical history and other background information is obtained. Following this, you will be given a number of tests that examine various areas of thinking (e.g. memory, problem solving, attention), emotions, and everyday behaviour. Many of these tests are paper and pencil tests, and might seem a little like things you did when at school.

These assessments vary in length, depending on their purpose. A short screening assessment might take only 2 hours, whereas an assessment for an insurance claim will more usually take 7–8 hours (across two sessions). You will be provided with rest breaks.
