ADHD / LEARNING ASSESSMENTS FOR CHILDREN
We offer comprehensive assessments for children which cover a range of diagnoses including ADHD and specific learning difficulties (eg: dyslexia, dyscalculia). If you'd like to book an assessment for your child, please complete our online enquiry form.
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.
If you are unsure which assessment is most appropriate for your child, our reception team will be happy to explain our range of assessments and help you decide which to choose.
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
Assessment session/s with the child only
A feedback session in which a comprehensive assessment report is provided and feedback about the assessment results and any diagnosis is given
Will the psychologist provide a diagnosis?
Yes. If your child meets the required criteria for a specific diagnosis.
It may be appropriate for your child to see a paediatrician or psychiatrist following their ADHD and/or learning assessment. Please note there are no psychiatrists or paediatricians at our practice and any fees charged by these specialists will be in addition to the fee for our assessment.
