I provide assessment for children who need IQ testing. The tests can also be useful in assessing a potential learning difficulty and for children who may be gifted.

Do you wonder if your child is meeting their full potential when it comes to academic development? Parents often report difficulties with their child’s attention, concentration, expressive language skills, reading comprehension and working memory tasks.

If you share these or similar concerns, you may be interested in the following educational testing. The tests measure cognitive development and are available for children from 2.5 years onwards.

The tests can assist with the diagnosis of reading disorders, language disorders, ADHD, nonverbal difficulties, visual vs auditory memory deficits and visual perception issues. In addition to identifying any weaknesses, these tests can also help you understand your child’s current strengths.

With early assessment and intervention, you can implement various strategies that will support your child including organisation skills, classroom accommodations and emotional regulation skills. These strategies are designed to allow your child to demonstrate their true ability, which in turn improves their self-concept and relationships.
