Most assessments take between two and three hours.
The assessment begins with an interview, in which you can express your concerns and you will be asked about your history.
The assessment will conclude with a cognitive assessment. This consists of mainly paper and pencil tasks. For example you will be asked to copy pictures, remember a list of words and solve problems. The assessment will evaluate various cognitive domains such as:
Attention and concentration
Memory and learning
Visual and spatial skills
