EDUCATIONAL / LEARNING ASSESSMENTS
Our psychologists conduct comprehensive learning and cognitive assessments for children and adults. These assessments provide valuable information for the individual, parents, teachers and caregivers regarding difficulties that may be impacting on the person's learning or development.

A learning / psychoeducational assessment can assist in identifying or diagnosing:
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 2 hours each
A feedback session in which the comprehensive assessment report is provided and feedback about the assessment results is given to parents and children.
How much does an assessment cost?
The fee for a psycho-educational assessment is $1700 which includes the assessment sessions, a comprehensive written report and feedback session. There are no Medicare rebates for psycho-educational assessments.
Payment for assessments can be made in installments by prior agreement. However, full payment must be received before the psychologist writes their written report. Please let our receptionist know if you would like to pay in installments.
