Neuropsychological Assessments

An acquired brain injury or neurological illness can lead to significant impairments to a range of abilities including memory, information processing, language, executive function and mood. By undertaking a neuropsychological assessment we can identify which of these abilities and functions may have been impaired and we can offer support in finding the best rehabilitation approach for you.



Rehabilitation

Following a neuropsychological assessment, we can work with an individual with a neurological condition to develop strategies tailored to their specific requirements in order to create a clear rehabilitation plan. We understand that each case is different and complex, requiring a supportive team of carers, professionals and family. We can support this team by regularly communicating and offering training on how best to support the rehabilitation process.

What can rehabilitation do?

We can help an individual, their family and the wider team to fully understand the neurological condition and identify the best ways to support the process of rehabilitation. Some of the issues people struggle with after an acquired neurological injury or illness are:

  • Difficulties with memory
  • Slower information processing and concentration
  • Difficulties with attention especially when trying to do more than one thing at a time
  • Difficulties with planning and organisation
  • Difficulties with awareness and insight
  • Perceptual difficulties for example judging distances and speed
  • Heightened Anger and Irritability
  • Heightened Anxiety
  • Low mood
  • Struggling with adjustment
  • Relationship difficulties
