The reason for your child’s struggles may not be immediately clear; do they have learning difficulties, problems settling into a new school, difficulties making friends? An assessment can give us insights into your child’s problem so that we can recommend the right course of action.
What is a psychological assessment?
The assessment can take various forms, depending on your child’s needs. We may:
- Meet you to discuss your parenting style or your child’s developmental history
- Observe your child at home or at school
- Meet with your child to understand their perspective
- Ask you to fill in a behavioural questionnaire
- Suggest you meet with our colleagues from the Child Assessment Group who can provide more specialised help
What happens next?
We use the results of the psychological assessment to personalise our approach to your child and suggest the most appropriate trajectory.
