Cognitive Assessments: Psychologist administered IQ test.
Age Range 6 years 6 months - 90 years.

Sandy uses the Wechsler intelligence tests (WAIS IV,  WISC IV, WASI), These are the most widely used intelligence assessments  and among the most widely used neuro Psychological assessments. They are  far more complete than free tests that can be undertaken on the  Internet, as they test a variety of complete skills. Wechsler believed  intelligence is multifaceted and so any test of intelligence must  reflect this. The WAIS and WISC take approximately 90 mins to administer  and the analysis provides and overall full scale IQ and sub tests  results indicating strengths and Weaknesses.

Mental Capacity certificates can be provided after Wechsler IV assessments and interview, in order to assess an individuals capacity  to understand court proceeding, and instruct their legal representative.
