Are you concerned your child is not developing at the expected rate?
Do you feel like there are barriers stopping your child to reach their full potential?
As a parent, it’s in our DNA to be concerned and worry about our children’s development. Are they doing what they’re “supposed” to be doing? In some cases children and teenagers can struggle and fall behind, and you as a parent may not know why.
It’s important to seek professional support and address the barriers that may be hindering your child in reaching their full potential. Don’t be concerned – these obstacles can be overcome!
Why would your child need a Psychological Assessment?
- To identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses to guide learning and decision making
- To measure your child’s ability level in a range of areas including oral language, reading level, comprehension and fluency, written expression, mathematical ability and fluency
- Obtain detailed results and recommendations to support your applications for funding with school, Centrelink or the NDIS
Part of the psychological assessment process includes assessing your child’s language, motor, cognitive, social and adaptive behaviour functions, to ensure any delays are identified.
