Psycho-educational Assessments

Struggling at school is no fun at all.  And it’s not fair!

If your child needs extra support at school don’t let them miss out! Psycho-educational Assessments can help uncover learning disorders such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia.  Even better, it will help teachers and educators understand what’s going on and how they can help make the whole schooling experience work for your child.

These assessments can also provide the official verification that children with an intellectual disability need to access the help and funding they need.  Some common clues your child may need assessing are:

  • Not reaching their academic potential
  • Falling behind their classmates despite extra help
  • Teacher expressing concerns about their learning
  • Slow to learn letters-sound combinations
  • Mixes up letters or jumbles sentences
  • Spelling or reading the same word differently in one piece of writing
  • Resists reading and writing tasks or shows behavioural difficulties when asked to do so
  • Extremely tired at the end of the school day
  • Having trouble remembering multiple instructions
  • Disorganised

Vocational Assessments

How much of our lives do we spend at work?  A lot!

In fact, on average we spend 90,000 hours of our lives at work – that’s a third!  And even worse – a recent poll found that over half of Aussies don’t enjoy their jobs!  That’s why making sure you’re following the right path is so important from the get-go.

A Vocational Assessment does just that.  It includes an intelligence test, personality assessment, aptitudes questionnaire and an interview, with a comprehensive report at the end.  Vocational Assessments are often common for students in high school, but can also often be used as part of a Return to Work program, when an individual needs to find a different job due to a workplace injury.

Well worth the investment.

Personality Assessments

A personality assessment helps to explore the, “Who am I?” and “Why do I <insert behaviour here>”.

It’s based on the Big 5 Personality Factor with a great acronym of OCEAN.  The test works out where you sit on a scale for 5 different factors.  They are:

Openness
Conscientiousness
Extraversion
Agreeableness
Neuroticism
