Medical neuropsych: Important to get both competent medical or neurological workup to rule out medical or treatable disease and neuropsychological testing which is often more sensitive to early detenction of cognitive difficulties. Early detection allows for better treatment choices of underlying causes or even in some cases medications to slow down progression. As always good assessment begets good treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
Online cognitive: Gosh, never heard of such a combination? Cognitive test makes sense, but be wary of online tests. In most states psychological testing must be done by a licensed psychologist, and this provides legal confidentiality. For general discussion see http://cpancf.

Numerous causes: There are numerous possible causes for changes in cognitive status. A few are: medications, head trauma, sleep apnea, lack of sleep, illegal drug use, stroke, alzheimer's disease, kidney disease, liver disease, brain tumor. The list goes on and on. If you think you are having a problem with cognitive function you need to speak to your doctor about this so that they can diagnose your situation.
Depends: It depends on the type and severity of the disability. A thorough assessment and prompt intervention, accompanied by parent skill training optimizes the outcome.
Occasionally...: If tired or hungry, a snack of strawberries can help one perk up and finish homework, paperwork, or computer work. If a third-grader is procrastinating about his math, an offer of strawberries can get his brain motivated. Of course, it only works if used once in a while.
'Cogs' In A Wheel: Have you ever sat for a test thinking either your future life depended on it-or-you didn't give a ____? Were you good at test-taking?

Anyways, Bottom line is if you're smart & disciplined you have 1/2 a chance.See 1 more doctor answer
Deficit continuum: Cognitive impairment is assessed by various neurological and neuropsychological tests. Such impairment can be described in scores or other test values, which are sometimes also categorized as "mild, moderate, or severe." such general descriptions of impairment, of course, over-simplify the actual functioning or presentation of the individual. They do help when a quick abbreviation is needed.
Dementia: First, he should have a medical workup to determine the cause of the decline. For patients with dementia, there are many geriatric day programs (essentially adult day care) available or you could consider the possibility of a sitter. Less palatable options are assisted living or nursing facilities. A good source of information can be your local alzheimers association.
A Therapeutic Method: Cognitive therapy (ct) is a type of psychotherapy that could be classified under the broader rubric of cognitive-behavioral therapies. Ct or cbt involves the therapist and the patient working together to revise problematic thinking patterns that lead to emotional and behavioral problems. This is essential because one's beliefs affect one's view of self and one's prospects for future happiness, etc.See 1 more doctor answer
CAT: Cognitive analytic therapy was developed in the uk. It is a time limited treatment to identify interpersonal difficulties & looks at how thoughts, emotions and experience lead to particular emotional problems.
Rx for depression...: ...And anxiety. Very broadly speaking, it is group of psychotherapies that does not care whether or not, or how a person's psychological problems are related to their unconscious conflicts. Instead, this group of treatments tries to interrupt the sequence of conscious thoughts, feelings and behaviors to alleviate mental symptoms. Particularly effective for depressive and anxiety disorders.See 1 more doctor answer

Indirectly, yes: Visual loss in and of itself will not cause a loss of cognitive function. However, it may worsen the situation in people with dementia, as it impairs orientation and general functioning. So, a person with dementia and severe cataract may see an improvement in functioning if the vision is improved.
Many causes: Cognitive problems are quite different than social problems. The causes for each or both are many. There can be physical conditions as well as emotional disorders. Without knowing more precisely which problems you are referring to, it is difficult to give a proper answer. I would start with discussing the concerns with the child's pediatrician.
May help: Especially if you are suffering from depressive disorder or anxiety. But if not, it is hard to say. In any case, unless you are suffering from recent impairment of cognition due to depression or anxiety, degree of improvement will not be dramatic. For people who are not suffering from mental illness, I don't think any antidepressant will help.
