Assessment

Following referral (parent, Doctor, teacher, physiotherapist, speech pathologist, clinical psychologist) an appointment will be made for an assessment. The assessment takes approximately 2 hours involving both child and parent. A series of specifically chosen standardised and non-standardised tests are carried out. Discussion with the parent outlines the main areas of strength, areas for development and functional implications.  Following the assessment a comprehensive report will be written, outlining  specific recommendations and goals for your child.

Assessment performance components include sensorimotor, cognitive, and pschosocial domains.
