Assesments for children and young people
At the R.E.A.D. Clinic there are a range of assessments for a variety of purposes. We take the assessment of children very seriously and will always provide a comprehensive report explaining all the tests that we have used, a complete explanation of the results, our opinion regarding the potential diagnosis being assessed and a comprehensive list of recommendations so as you can best support your child.
The types of assessments we provide can largely be divided into 6 categories:
- IQ assessments – for the purposes of understanding your child’s level of intelligence to assist making decisions about whether there may be issues of developmental delay, gifted and talented, or to determine school readiness
- Learning Difficulties assessments – for the purposes of assisting your understanding of why your child might be struggling with their reading, their spelling or their maths. This type of assessment is often also used to provide support for applications of special provisions for HSC of School Certificate exams
- Vocational assessments – children in Years 9 and above are often wondering which subjects to pick and can be unsure where their future career might be. These assessments assist your child in better understanding career options that suit their preferred level of study, their values and their interests.
- ADHD assessments – these provide a comprehensive neuropsychological test battery to not only understand whether your chid has ADHD but also understand their strengths and weaknesses for the purpose of providing helpful recommendations for interventions and classroom strategies for learning.
- Autism/Asperger’s assessments – these provide a comprehensive battery of assessments to help you understand whether your child has a disorder on the autism spectrum and provide recommendations accordingly.
- Emotional and Behavioural disorders – these provide a battery of tests which assist you understand what type of emotional and/or behavioural disorder your child presents with and provide recommendations accordingly.
