Assessments are conducted by trained professionals and are an important first step in understanding and diagnosing a child’s learning, social and wellbeing needs. At Learning Links, our psychologists, speech therapists and occupational therapists provide a wide range of diagnostic assessment services at our centres across Sydney to determine children’s learning styles, strengths and needs. By evaluating and understanding where a child has challenges, we can provide tailored recommendations, interventions and therapies, positive coping strategies, reduce the child’s stress and enrich their competence and wellbeing.
Each child is different so it is best to discuss your concerns with Learning Links to determine the appropriate assessment option for your child.
After every assessment, a comprehensive written report will be provided and discussed with you, outlining the results and recommendations to best help your child. You can share results and recommendations with your child’s teachers and other professionals so that appropriate strategies can be used to support your child to thrive.
Psychological assessments use an accredited combination of tests, interviews, observation and specific testing tools to help understand your child’s behaviours, emotions, strengths, needs and development. This comprehensive evaluation helps psychologists to provide diagnosis of specific conditions, set goals to support your child’s specific needs and identify appropriate treatments.
