Who can carry out a cognition and learning assessment?

Educational and child psychologists, and clinical psychologists are the only professionals permitted to carry out cognitive assessments. The use of cognitive assessments is heavily controlled and only certain psychologists are able to use them. Learning assessments can be carried out by educational and child psychologists, clinical psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and some qualified specialist teachers. The benefit of using one of our educational and child psychologists for learning assessments is their knowledge and ability to apply psychology to the results, this in turn increases learning potential.

A cognition and learning assessment carried out by our team provides a transparent and independent opinion with the child or young person’s needs and best interests kept at the forefront.

What happens after a cognition and learning assessment?

The option to purchase a written report is available. During feedback we will review the findings and discuss possible future steps with you. If a referral to an external service is required then we will assist you wherever possible. Following a cognition and learning assessment we would liaise with any professionals working with the child or young person to support a joined up approach. If an intervention is suggested as the next step then our team, school staff and parents or carers can all work together to achieve the best outcome. You can read more about our reports and interventions.
