Psychological assessment involves the use of techniques and tools to learn about a child, either to inform others about how they function now, or giving information to assist in predicting their behaviour and functioning in the future.
This information can be valuable in finding out specific information about a child, giving parents, carers and professionals information that can assist children to meet their full potential, including assisting families to access funding and supports.
The process of psychological assessment may include interviews, behavioural observations, behavioural inventories or psychometric tests that are used by psychologists to form a picture of what is occurring for a child. Please contact us for further information about our testing and assessment processes and how these can assist your child.
We provide assessments for Learning Difficulties, Cognitvie (thinking) ability, Autism Spectrum Disorders and difficulties such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and other mental health conditions.
We offer therapeutic intervention services to children, adolescents and their families for a variety of issues, including:
When approaching these issues with you, techniques and strategies that may be used include Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Brief Solution Focussed Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Mindfulness.
We might also set ‘Homework’ in the form of activities to trial at home, which will allow your child to experiment and gain a greater understanding about themselves outside of the clinic room.
Positive behaviour support is built upon the principal that all behaviours occur for a reason - that is - all behaviours have a meaning for that person, and are rewarded in one way or another. Using positive behaviour support, we are able to develop strategies to manage serious and challenging behaviours, including strategies that can be used at home, when in the community and at school. Two examples of programs which make use of positive behaviour support principles include Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and Triple P (Positive Parenting Program), elements of which we use in our practice.
