Psychological Assessment

Everything you need to know about child testing


Let's start with a common scenario...

If your child is unwell, you will probably take them to your local doctor for a medical evaluation. A good doctor will ask about particular symptoms and perhaps a bit about the child’s medical history. Your doctor may run some tests to find out what was causing your child’s illness. And finally, in light of the results, your doctor will recommend the best course of treatment and guide you towards appropriate supports; either with a referral to another specialist, or a prescription for medication.

As psychologists we help families in much the same way. Except, instead of dealing with medical problems, we specialise in behavioural, social, emotional, cognitive and school learning problems. Our version of the doctor’s medical evaluation is called a psychological assessment.
