Why Assess?

Our referrals commonly come through Paediatricians, GP's, schools and families themselves. All psychological assessments and interventions are provided with extensive knowledge of working with children and families. Through direct observation within the family home, consultation with parents and robust clinical assessment, our friendly child psychologists develop accurate clinical formulations that are detailed in a comprehensive psychological report. These reports summarise background & medical information, clinical observations and standardised test results and provide practical recommendations to parents and stakeholders such as supporting health professionals and schools. Our reports are legal documents and are accepted by the Disability Services Commission (DSC) Eligibility Team in instances where Intellectual Disability or Autism is identified.
