COGNITIVE SKILLS ASSESSMENTS

​Test your cognitive skills

 

We carry out full cognitive assessments designed to measure an individual's learning skills. 

After the assessment is completed we will schedule a consultation meeting to discuss the results and give recommendations.

One of the tools we use is a comprehensive test (the Gibson Test) designed to provide reliable information to families, educators, clinicians and employers of the cognitive performance of their family members, students, clients and employees.

What difference can cognitive testing make for you or your child?

Many families and individuals describe experiencing an "Aha!" moment when they see the results of their test. In fact, we often hear comments like "Now everything makes sense" as families see the performance of weak skills responsible for some of their most frustrating daily struggles. The reason to complete a cognitive test to identify weak skills is simple: once identified, weak skills can be strengthened through brain training. Strengthening these skills typically addresses the root cause of the problem and removes frustrating obstacles to learning and performing. Identifying weak skills can:

  • Give professionals and families the answers they need to make informed decisions regarding the best intervention for a child or adult. 

  • Save time and money that might have been spent pursuing interventions that don't address the root cause of the problem. 

The Gibson Test

The Gibson Test has been highly researched and administered more than 95,000 times since being developed in 1999. It is used by psychologists, educators, neurologists, audiologists, speech and language therapists and brain training specialists. It has been validated and normed twice by experts in the fields of learning and cognition, and has strong psychometric properties that meet or exceed the standards for an educational test.

Here are examples of results from the Gibson Test:

A study into the reliability of the Gibson test included 2,737 participants ranging in age from 5 to 85. Results indicated strong sources of evidence of validity and reliability for the test, including test-retest reliability coefficients ranging from .69-.91, split-half reliability coefficients ranging from .87 to .91, and concurrent validity coefficients ranging from .53 to .93.  The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills -2 is a reliable and valid tool for assessing cognition in the general population across the lifespan, Moore, A.L., & Miller, T. (2018).

 

Assessment cost:  £150 +VAT. Includes assessment and consultation.

Gibson test example ASD.png
Gibson test example College professor.png

This is an example of test results from a college professor. As you can see, she has an overall very good cognitive profile. However, her 'Working memory' score is coloured in red. This means it is strongly below average for someone of her age. This explains why she has been complaining about her short-term memory in recent years. She now knows what to concentrate on when embarking on a brain training programme. 

Here we have an example of the results from another client of ours with Autism. As you can see, the scores of all but one cognitive areas are very low. This means that this client has to use this one strength to try and manoeuvre through life, and that would make most aspects of life very difficult and stressful. From these results we can see that training weak cognitive skills is the true game changer.
