- Intellectual Disability
We provide supportive care throughout your journey.
A marked decline in learning, memory, language, perception, or problem-solving is cause for concern. If you or a loved one are experiencing a deterioration in cognitive function, a professional assessment will bring you peace of mind and/or the basis for a plan of action.
Disorders of cognition include delirium, neurocognitive disorder (commonly known as dementia) and intellectual disability.
The causes of cognitive disorders include injury, infection, disease, and substance abuse. Disorders in cognition are also associated with aging, though the underlying cause is often an age-related disease such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease, not the aging process itself.
Objective testing is essential for diagnosing cognitive disorders and mapping out the best course of treatment. At Eappen Clinic, we understand that the prospect of a cognitive disorder can be scary, and we offer supportive care throughout your journey.
