Identifying the Need

Our initial aim is to recognise the learning difficulty then respond to it.

We ask questions

Many neurodiverse learners have actually developed ways to disguise their learning differences, which is why screening everyone is the best method to deliver outstanding services.

A simple five minute questionnaire can be emailed to the learner and completed online, or installed onto your employee’s laptops and completed on-site. The questionnaire allows us to identify any individuals who have an above average likelihood of having additional learning needs.

Anyone highlighted as possibly needing support following the questionnaire, then completes a 30 minute assessment. This profiles eight neurological aspects of learning and thinking, and produces a professional and informed report which can be used as evidence of any additional learning needs.

The assessment is installed onto the laptop of your staff, and assessments can be completed without internet access.

Following the assessment, anyone identified as having additional learning support will have a bespoke learning library populated for them, and this will be tailored to their specific needs.

Identifying the Need

We’ve created the sector’s most sophisticated digital assessment tool

Identifying neurodiversity within a simple to use, 30 minute digital assessment was one of the biggest challenges faced in building CognAssist, but we did it and it works brilliantly.

The assessment has been designed and evaluated by leading Neuropsychologists, Dr Welch and Dr Skillbeck. What’s more, it’s been created to mimic established paper-based assessments for each of the eight Domains profiled:

  • Verbal Memory
  • Non Verbal Memory
  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Visual Information Processing Speed
  • Executive Function
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non Verbal Reasoning
