At HeadWise Rehabilitation, we provide assessments for the purpose of identifying any challenges that clients may have and utilizing the results to make recommendations regarding treatment, academic accommodations, possible vocational goals, and/or skills upgrading programs. We specialize in neuropsychological assessments for people with head injuries or other suspected neurocognitive impairments, such as memory troubles and distractibility. We also offer a diagnostic screening assessment for clients who experience neurocognitive impairments but may not require a full neuropsychological assessment. Our assessments are conducted by highly skilled psychologists who have extensive experience in the field of working with brain injury or brain dysfunction resulting from a variety of other causes.
An assessment at HeadWise Rehabilitation typically consists of a detailed interview to obtain information about relevant issues in a client’s background (such as medical history, schooling, and work history), cognitive testing, a report, and a debriefing session once the report has been completed. We provide assessments to clients who are referred by law firms, from employment service centres, and through WorkSafeBC. Self-referrals and referrals from other sources are welcomed as well.
