Educational Psychology Assessment
Educational psychology assessments offer a wonderful way to really understand your child's needs. They look at various aspects like how your child learns, their strengths, and areas where they might need a bit more support.
They consider cognitive abilities, academic achievements, emotions, and more, giving a full picture of your child's learning style, attention, memory, and problem-solving skills. With this knowledge, teachers, parents, and professionals can create personalised strategies and interventions that suit your child's unique needs.
It's like having a roadmap to support your child's learning journey in the best way possible!
Educational Psychology assessments play a very important role in assessing for:
● Specific learning difficulties like Dyslexia (reading difficulty), Dyscalculia (maths difficulty) and Dysgraphia (written expression difficulty)
● General Learning Difficulties
They can also screen for:
● Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) also known as Dyspraxia
● Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
● Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
● Mental health difficulties
The testing process includes exploring your child’s developmental history, conducting a review of teacher/school information, testing their cognitive/IQ or thinking skills, and their academic skills (also known as attainments). This includes a comprehensive report, recommendations and onward referral to services if appropriate.
