About Assessments

Assessments are an important tool to assist children and their parents when a child may be struggling at school and performing below what they may be capable of.

The concerns may be related to their educational performances like reading or writing, to inattention and concentration difficulties, anxiety or due to social challenges. Possible signs of Specific Language Disorder (Dyslexia), Dyscalculia, ADHD, developmental challenges may have been reported previously. An assessment is not purely for diagnostic purposes but due to the nature of the testing a deeper, more detailed understanding can be gained.

These assessments will be able to assess these concerns, as well as put in place recommendations in order for your child to reach their full potential.

It involves assessing one or more of the following areas:

- Cognitive Assessment
- Educational Assessment
- Emotional Assessment
- Neurodevelopmental Assessment
- Concentration
- Dyslexia Screening

The process involves:

  • Intake meeting with parents to get all the background information, as well as main areas of concern.
  • Teacher interviews to gain an understanding of concerns noted within the classroom.
  • School observations are also included where required.
  • The assessment with the child where all the relevant tests and assessment tools are conducted. This process could take 6 to 8 hours of face-to-face consultations with the child.
  • Once a detailed and comprehensive report is constructed the parents attend a feedback session where the results and recommendations are discussed.
  • Often, an additional consultation meeting with the school is also arranged.
