- sensory experience (sensation, hearing, or sight)
- language expression
- reasoning skills
However, impairment in any one of these areas can involve a number of various symptoms.
Recognition of a cognitive impairment may come over time, as the symptoms of the impairment become more evident to you and your family members.
