Depending on the age, the doctor will observe the person as the sit there and speak with him/her. He/She will observe if this person is fidgety, if they lose their train of thought, and how well are they involved in the conversation.
If it is a child, the doctor may also do some other observations. The doctor may have the child do a puzzle, ask the child to set up their blocks like the doctors, and these kinds of things.
