Generally yes, we prefer that children take all usual medications before an assessment, so that the assessment is conducted with them as they usually are at school (e.g., if your child takes medication to assist their attention at school, it’s preferable that they also take this before an assessment). There are times where medications may not be appropriate, or you may wish to know your child’s abilities when not on medication. If this applies to you, of if you are unsure, please let our office manager and/or your neuropsychologist know when you appointments have been booked (preferably before the day of assessment), and your neuropsychologist can discuss your child’s specific circumstances with you.
