We offer assessments of psychological functioning for clients aged 6 and up, using a number of different standardised testing measures including the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children 5th Edition (WISC-V). We also offer the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale 4th Edition (WAIS-IV). A cognitive assessment is a clinical tool to measure individual cognitive abilities. Sometimes it is more commonly known as a measure of intelligence.
Cognitive Assessments can be useful for funding needs (NDIS; Education; Centrelink disability services), contribute to diagnosis services (Intellectual disability; Autism); support planning (individual learning plans; community support plans).
We also offer more specific educational/learning assessments which can measure and individual’s ability in oral language, reading, written language, and mathematics (commonly known as Literacy and Numeracy).
We also offer assessments of personality eg. Personality Assessment Inventory.
