Child & Adolescent Assessments

What assessments are available for children and adolescents?

Mind Potential Psychology offers assessments for children and adolescents in a range of developmental areas, including cognitive testing for IQ/intelligence, learning difficulties, or cognitive functioning (6-16 years)

What does an assessment include?

All of our assessments start with an intake session with the parent. During this session your psychologist will explore your child’s functioning, abilities, and developmental history. You may also be asked to complete some questionnaires. This allows your psychologist to gain as much insight as possible into your child’s functioning and tailor the assessment to their individual needs.

Following the intake session a time will be arranged for your child to come in for their assessment session/s with the psychologist. The time required for this assessment session/s will vary depending on the assessment/s being completed. This may take between one and three hours and will involve a snack break in the middle.

After the assessment/s have been completed, a feedback session will be arranged with the parent. During this session, the psychologist will provide a copy of the written report and discuss the results and recommendations with the parent.
