i didn't want to hijack someone elses blog so will post it here
whilst Neuropsychologist assessments are important i personally dont believe they show the true effects or accurate indicators of cognitive reasoning/ability
(i have copied the bits of the post i made elsewhere to save me typing lol)
I struggle with a lot of the aspects of them, but if its quiet and i can put all my mental energy into working out the answer in a controlled environment, it quickly exhausts you, there is no way i could do those things monthly let alone weekly or daily.
so if i answer something right, that is not a true indicator of my ability when i am outside and all the other factors of life are going on around you and the noise so whilst the tests do help assess a person, they don't take into account the energy involved to complete them and the strain that type of cognitive reasoning has on a daily basis
for those of you who have been through these, do you feel the same way?
i guess its the same for memory issues, you can only dedicate and remember so much in a day that you put all your energy into trying to remember all the important bits that everything else just gets lost in the noise
