Business Client Report
This assessment is closely related to the case you worked on for Assessment 2. In this assessment, students will develop a comprehensive Neuropsychological Report for the client they observed in Assessment 2. Points to cover will include relevant history and background, results by cognitive domain (not by test), clinical impressions, neuropsychological treatment recommendations, recommended multi-disciplinary investigations and treatment options.
*There will be a video on eLearning to help you with this task.
