ASSESSMENTS FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Let us help your child achieve their full potential.
At The Balmain Practice we take a wholistic approach to psychological and educational assessment, using proven and reliable tests supplemented with relevant medical history and background information from parents and teachers.
Your child's wellbeing is paramount, always. We understand the importance of placing your child at ease during testing to enable them to complete the tests to the best of their ability without becoming distressed or upset. Our psychologists take a warm, friendly, relaxed and supportive approach to testing and actively engage with your child throughout the testing process. All testing is administered in a peaceful, comfortable and quiet environment free of noise and distractions.
Our psychologists have expertise in the tests administered and are able to recognise behaviour during testing that may indicate underlying conditions or a neurological disorder such as:
ADD (attention deficit disorder)
ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder)
ASD (Autism spectrum disorder)
