Comprehensive Assessments

At Eastern Suburbs Child Psychology we use the latest assessment methodology for reliable diagnosis.

  • psychoeducational: intelligence (IQ) and educational achievement assessments
  • assessment for giftedness
  • behavioural and emotional difficulties assessment

How do we carry out the assessment?

You will be asked to complete a background information questionnaire about your child in the first session.

We collect information about your child from you and your child’s pre-school or school. Following the assessment, we provide a full report with recommendations for you and your child’s teachers.

All information gathered about your child and your family will be treated with strict confidentiality.

Intervention

Intervention is evidence-based, practical and uses your child’s strength to overcome difficulties. We work with your child’s teachers and health professionals, as needed, to support your child.
