Psychoeducational Assessments

We have current availability for assessments in Sydney

Young people are often referred for assessments by schools, paediatricians, parents, school counsellors and general practitioners (GPs). Assessments are highly reliable tools that can assist in obtaining a more in-depth understanding of the child's specific needs, with a view to planning appropriate intervention.

All assessments are conducted by highly skilled practitioners who have a natural ability to connect with young people, to facilitate anxiety reduction, yielding more accurate test results. Results are provided to parents in a detailed psychological report including practical recommendations for parents and schools. 

 

Curious Kids Psychology offers a range of assessments including:

  • Cognitive Assessments:
    Often known as an IQ test, a cognitive assessment is considered a gold standard tool for identifying a young person's natural way of learning. It is designed to uncover an individual's pattern of strengths and weaknesses, with a view to applying this knowledge to assist the child in their learning.

  • Educational Assessments:
    Whilst cognitive assessments focus on natural learning style and potential, educational assessments are used to measure a child’s actual academic ability in line with typical age-appropriate school-based tasks.  Assessment areas include reading, reading comprehension and fluency, oral expression, written expression, mathematics and maths fluency.  

  • Behaviour Assessments:   

  • Autism Assessments

  • ADHD assessments, including executive functioning

  • Adaptive behaviour

  • Mental Health (anxiety, depression)
