The cognitive testing services will cater for obtaining overall cognitive profile, Intellectual Disability (ID; Intellectual Development Disorder) and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), for individuals 18+ only.
The assessment process will involve attendance to multiple appointments to obtain comprehensive development history, and administration of cognitive test and clinical measures.

The writing of this report could take anywhere between 4-6 weeks.
Cognitive testing is fully privately paid (or if NDIS funding available), no medicare rebates available.
