ADHD

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting children and adolescents’ ability to focus, control impulses, and interact socially. Indications include inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, organisational and time management problems, forgetfulness, difficulty following instructions, and trouble with social interactions. A diagnosis can lead to additional support, such as learning assistance, teaching aids, special provisions, medication, and behavioural strategies to improve self-management and coping skills.

Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can be identified early in life but also diagnosed in older children and teenagers. It presents difficulties in social interaction, communication, play, and learning, along with repetitive behaviours and sensory challenges. Early intervention and assessment can significantly improve social, learning, and behavioural outcomes, as well as long-term mental wellbeing for individuals with autism.

Cognitive Assessment

A cognitive assessment provides insights into a child or teen’s cognitive strengths, areas for improvement, and learning potential. This includes their IQ score, verbal comprehension, visual spatial skills, fluid reasoning, working memory, and processing speed. It’s useful for those with challenges in understanding, problem-solving, memory, processing speed, or exceptional abilities. The assessment helps understand their learning style, allowing educators to tailor teaching methods and provide necessary academic support.

Educational

An educational assessment evaluates an individual’s performance in key areas such as reading, writing, maths, and comprehension, and is useful for identifying academic underperformance, overperformance, or specific learning disorders. It is indicated when there are concerns about academic performance, cognitive abilities, or emotional and behavioural functioning. The assessment can also identify giftedness, monitor a student’s progress after literacy intervention, provide documentation for special considerations, secure special funding for educational programs, and offer detailed recommendations for effective interventions.
