At Pathways Health and Research Centre, we offer a range of psychological assessment services for children and adolescents. Our principal psychologist has extensive experience providing cognitive assessments and writing comprehensive reports for schools to use in guiding learning.
In some cases, the social, behavioural and emotional difficulties that children and adolescents exhibit may be complicated by underlying cognitive issues. Thus, an assessment of cognitive skills can be useful in providing recommendations for specific accommodations and modifications to support individuals’ learning, achievement, developmental, psychological and behavioural needs. Such recommendations could be used to inform individual learning plans for students in the classroom, which can help improve individuals’ ability to learn more effectively. We currently offer the following assessment services:
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) – Children aged 6-16
Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT)
WISC assessment + comprehensive report: $550
WISC assessment + WIAT assessment + comprehensive report: $750
To gain a comprehensive understanding of the individuals’ level of functioning and needs, it is often best practice for the Psychologist to consult with other educational and/ or health care providers who work with the individual. Taking into consideration these factors, along with the individuals’ needs, the Psychologist will generate an individualised written report of the assessment results and recommendations.
Report turnaround time: Generally between 4-6 weeks after the last testing session.
