Cognitive disorders include, for example, memory difficulties, concentration problems, difficulties with new learning, dyslexia, dyscalculia, executive difficulties (ie difficulties with cognitive self-regulation and ability to cognitively apply themselves, as well as ability to relate information from surroundings). Cognitive disorders are mapped through neuropsychological testing. Such testing can reveal both strengths and weaknesses of a person’s cognitive functioning. Such a mapping is often important, both when considering treatment strategies for various mental disorders, when considering an ability to work or possibly assessing the occurrence of occupational disability.
