Understanding Cognitive Assessments

Cognitive assessments are designed to evaluate various aspects of your thinking abilities, such as memory, attention, problem-solving, and reasoning skills. These assessments can help identify cognitive strengths and areas that may need support. At Unbound Minds, we offer comprehensive cognitive assessments for adults.


Why Get Assessed?

Getting a cognitive assessment as an adult can provide valuable insights into your mental functioning. It can:

  • Help you understand your cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
  • Provide explanations for challenges you might face in daily life.
  • Open up access to resources and support networks.
  • Assist in planning for education, career, or personal development.

The Importance of Accurate Assessment

Cognitive abilities cannot and should not be assessed through a short-form questionnaire or screener alone. While these screeners can sometimes help determine whether it’s worth pursuing a clinical assessment, they are not sufficient for a comprehensive understanding. Clinical assessments, on the other hand, are detailed and thorough, taking into account your developmental history, current functioning, and specific challenges.
