The UQ Psychology Clinic provides affordable cognitive and neuropsychological assessments.

The assessments are carried out by Provisional Psychologists who are pursuing advanced postgraduate degrees in psychology.

Our Provisional Psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia and receive regular supervision from experienced psychologists.

We have a dedicated neurodevelopmental clinic for those aged up to 25 years for the purpose of assessing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Additionally, we use evidence-based cognitive and neuropsychological assessments for clients of all ages to provide a provisional or formal diagnosis with a range of concerns, such as: 

  • memory loss
  • specific learning disorders (e.g. dyslexia)
  • intellectual disability
  • changes in focus/concentration
  • coordination or spatial errors
  • cognitive changes as a result of stroke, infection, or head injury. 


When you visit the clinic, we will:

  • determine the most appropriate tests/measures to answer your referral question
  • conduct a robust assessment
  • give insight into your condition
  • highlight your strengths and weaknesses
  • discuss next steps after your assessment.


What to expect

During your sessions with us:

  • You will get to talk about what you are experiencing.
  • We can conduct assessment on the same day or across different days (most typically 4 – 10 hours in total)
  • Once your assessment is complete, we will provide a written report and explore possible rehabilitation options.

Please contact our Clinic if you would like to discuss whether the cognitive issue you are experiencing is something that our provisional psychologists can assist with.

Services not offered by the UQ Psychology Clinic

It is important to note the following limitations to the assessment services we provide. We recommend you see your local doctor or other suitable health professional for more appropriate referral options to avoid unnecessary delays in obtaining appropriate assistance for your needs:

  • We do not offer ADHD or ASD assessments for those aged 26 years or older. We recommend those aged 26 years old consult their GP to arrange a referral to a psychiatrist for ADHD or ASD assessment.
  • We do not currently administer ADOS assessments (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule)
  • We do not complete capacity assessment for medico/legal, worker’s compensation, family court, or other legal matters.
  • We do not complete NDIS applications. Reports provided by the clinic can be used as supporting documentation only.
  • We do not provide services to students undertaking postgraduate psychology or counselling studies at UQ (undergraduate UQ students, including those from the School of Psychology, are welcome to be seen at the Clinic).
