ADHD / LEARNING ASSESSMENTS FOR CHILDREN
We offer comprehensive learning /educational assessments for children which cover a range of diagnoses including ADHD and specific learning difficulties (eg: dyslexia, dyscalculia).
These assessments provide valuable information for the child, parents, teachers and caregivers regarding difficulties that may be impacting on the child's learning or development.
As a result of a learning / educational assessment, our psychologists can diagnose:
Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia (problems with reading, spelling, writing, maths)
Attention and memory difficulties (eg: ADHD)
What does the assessment involve?
The assessment process is generally conducted over a 3-4 week period and consists of:
An initial session with the child's parent/s only, to discuss relevant background information and ascertain whether an assessment is appropriate
2 assessment sessions with the child, which run for approximately 1.5 - 2 hours each
A feedback session in which a comprehensive assessment report is provided and feedback about the assessment results and any diagnosis is given to parents and children.
Will the psychologist provide a diagnosis?
Yes. If your child meets the required criteria for a specific diagnosis.
How much does an assessment cost?
The fee for a learning / educational assessment is $2200 which includes the assessment sessions, a comprehensive written report and feedback session. There are no Medicare rebates for learning / educational assessments.
