Prices vary depending on how much work is required. For example, a shorter assessment may be sufficient instead of a comprehensive one; a brief letter to your doctor may be preferred instead of a comprehensive report. You can work with the neuropsychologist to determine exactly what you need during the initial consultation (aka Intake Session).

Face-to-face assessments can take up to four hours. Your neuropsychologist must then spend many hours going through these results, and writing up a comprehensive report. In total, your neuropsychologist may spend up to or more than 10 hours on your case.

First, you will chat with neuropsychologist about the problems you are experiencing in a 50 minute intake session. The intake session is very important as it helps determine if an assessment is necessary, and allows the neuropsychologist to gain information about your history for the report.

Next, your neuropsychologist will offer you an assessment if it is appropriate. The assessment will be scheduled on a different day, usually within the next few weeks depending on wait times.

During the assessment, the neuropsychologist will take you through a range of tasks such as puzzles, written and verbal activities, and things designed to look at each of the different areas of how your brain thinks. Assessments can range in time (from 2 to 4 hours depending on the type of testing needed and if breaks are required).

If recommended, you may come back for a 50 minute feedback session to discuss the results.

In order to put your best into the assessment, please ensure you get a good night sleep and eat a good breakfast before the session.
