Assessments

We use psychological assessments to learn more about children’s abilities, difficulties, behaviours and emotions.

Your child may benefit from an assessment if she/he is:

  • having difficulties learning or remembering
  • struggling reading or doing maths
  • feeling easily bored at preschool or school
  • finding it difficult to concentrate
  • behaving in challenging ways
  • developing in unexpected ways
  • having trouble communicating or playing with other children

Assessments to suit your child’s needs

We use the most up-to-date, reliable and valid assessment tools to accurately measure your child’s abilities and to appropriately determine the nature of your child’s difficulties. The results of the assessment and the practical recommendations that we provide can help your child at home and school.

The assessment process usually involves:

  • an introductory session with parents/guardians to obtain background information in order to determine the assessment tools that will best meet your child’s needs,
  • a session with your child to administer the assessment,
  • interpretation of the results of the assessment and writing of a detailed, psychological report by a clinical psychologist,
  • a feedback session to discuss the results of the assessment, outline recommendations for home and school, and answer any questions you may have, and
  • a detailed, psychological report that includes thorough and practical recommendations for parents and teachers.
