When a child is under 10 or 11, they are given a brief and friendly interview following which their parent is interviewed in depth.

Neuropsychological assessment
This is carried out when any type of intellectual (cognitive) functioning is impaired following a head injury, concussion or brain disease. It involves a comprehensive series tests plus where appropriate interviewing of relatives.
