IQ or cognitive assessments are designed to measure a variety of mental functions, such as reasoning, memory, processing speed and comprehension. The goal of an IQ or cognitive assessment is to obtain an idea of a person’s intellectual potential, providing an outline of his or her cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
With a good understanding of your/your child’s IQ or cognitive profile, appropriate accommodations can be identified to best support you/your child. Results can help school staff make informed decisions regarding learning programs, courses or the most appropriate choice of schools. Results can also help adults develop a better understanding of their cognitive functioning.
