  • Is their behaviour getting them into trouble at school?
  • Is your child having difficulty following instructions?
  • Do they seem to find it hard to process information?
  • Does your child have good verbal language skills but still struggles at school?
  • Has someone mentioned your child may have Autism Spectrum Disorder?
  • Does your child seem to have advanced skills and is getting bored?
  • Has the teacher recommended an assessment of their learning or behaviour?
  • Are you worried your child isn't reaching their full potential?

What is a cognitive or IQ assessment?

A cognitive assessment also known as an intelligence test represents a child’s general intellectual ability and is used to gain an understanding of the thinking and reasoning skills of children.

What is a school attainment or achievement test?

Achievement tests are used to identify the academic strengths and weaknesses of a student (aged over 4 years, up to 19 years). The results can be interpreted to inform decisions regarding eligibility for educational services, educational placement, or diagnosis of a specific learning disability, and to plan interventions.

What is a functional assessment?

This is an analysis of a child’s daily living skills. It is often part of assessing for a disorder/ disability. Information is gathered across home and school settings and can identify areas that require allied health intervention.
