If ASD is still a concern then it is likely that social use of language will be assessed; the ability to see emotions in faces, to order pictures to tell a story and interpret feelings therein.
Higher order language skills means things like inference and deduction, prediction. The EP might do a full WISC which includes assessment of performance read, write, spell, maths and assessment of intelligence, problem solving, making matching puzzles, recognising missing parts.

Without knowing the priority for your child it is not possible to predict. It could be comletey different to all the above. Sorry not to be more helpful.

I often feel that these tests do not operate in the real world. Instead they take place in a quiet environment and one to one. Moreover they often appear to the child as a game to be played. Naturally the difficulties you see are not shown up.
Typical advice would be to address the child by name and by touch, making sure you have her attention, give a 3 part instruction asking child to visualise it then explain back to you what she has to do. Most children will cope with this. Your daughter is distracted by the busy environment around her and not able to shut it out. This can be supported over time and lead to improvements. Another technique is to tell the child what you expect them to be able to do i.e. colour the mug in correctly by following the directions. Then give the directions.
You might want to follow up assessment for a sensory disorder.
