Each person has a unique cognitive skills profile.

Our Cognitive Assessment helps to better understand individual strengths, weaknesses and learning needs.

Research has shown that 80% of struggles with reading, memory, attention, and learning are typically caused by weak cognitive skills - a condition common in children and adults that’s often overlooked. Our unique programs target and strengthen those weak skills. 


The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills is a non-invasive way of clinically measuring current cognitive brain skills.

The Gibson Test meets the highest scientific standards, and has been administered more than 100,000 times since 1999 by professionals including Psychologists, Educators, Neurologists, Audiologists, Speech & Language professionals, and Cognitive Training specialists around the world.

It has been validated and normed twice by experts in the fields of learning and cognition, and has strong psychometric properties that meet or exceed the standards for educational tests. 


It is one of the few cognitive assessments that measure a wide range of cognitive skills - the core skills the brain uses to think, learn, and perform in school, at university, at work, and in life. 

The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills scientifically measures the performance of the following key cognitive skills:

  • Long-term Memory

  • Working Memory

  • Processing Speed

  • Auditory Processing

  • Visual Processing

  • Logic & Reasoning

  • Attention 

  • Word Attack skills (not a cognitive skill but essential for fluent reading)

What difference can Cognitive Testing make for you or your child?


Many families and individuals describe experiencing an “Aha!” moment when they see the results of their Cognitive Skills Assessment. In fact, we often hear comments like “Now everything makes sense!” as clients see the performance of weak skills responsible for some of their most frustrating daily struggles.


The reason to complete a Cognitive Skills Assessment to identify weak skills is simple: once identified, weak skills can be strengthened through cognitive training. Strengthening these skills typically addresses the root cause of the problem, and removes frustrating obstacles to learning, reading, remembering and concentrating.


Identifying weak skills can:

  • Give professionals and families the answers they need to make informed decisions regarding the best cognitive development  intervention for a child or adult

  • Save time and money that might have been spent pursuing interventions that don’t address the root cause of the problem

​This process starts with a Cognitive Assessment, followed by a one-on-one conversation about your assessment results and brain training goals.

​The assessment is done online from the safety and security of your home or office. The assessment is used in more than 46 countries around the world and available in 23 languages, including English and Afrikaans.

The assessment scientifically measures the performance of seven key cognitive skills and pinpoints which cognitive skills may need to be targeted and strengthened to experience real change.
