PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENTS IN ADELAIDE
Our assessments include an initial consultation, a comprehensive written report and a feedback session with the parent. With your permission, we can also liaise with your child’s school to assist in developing a personalised learning plan for your child. Since we make use of a reliable and comprehensive digital assessment system through iPads, our educational assessments also take less time and are more accurate and reliable.
Psychoeducational assessments are often used to identify various concerns that are linked to different learning difficulties or strengths.
A psychologist will use an Intelligence Test, Achievement Test and Adaptive Functioning Measure to assess for intellectual disability.
Comprehensive psychoeducational assessment of specific learning disorders such as dyscalculia, dysgraphia and dyslexia.
Comprehensive ADHD assessment to determine whether your child is suffering from ADHD and to rule out other learning difficulties.
Thorough diagnosis to determine if you have a specific learning disorder such as dyslexia, dyscalculia or dysgraphia, or other concerns such as poor working memory and processing speed.
Hello, I’m Michael, the owner of Waterman Psychology Services. We have over 20 years’ experience in helping children and adults with learning difficulties. With a focus on educational psychology, our goal is to help your child overcome challenges and reach their full potential. If we understand early enough that a child has a learning disorder, we can drastically improve their academic and general performance.
I’m the only psychologist in Adelaide dedicated solely to the diagnosis and treatment of intellectual disorders in children. I’m passionate about child learning/behavioural issues, but also about your family’s wellbeing as a whole.
If you suspect that your child has behavioural issues or learning disorders, you should have them diagnosed in an educational psychology clinic immediately. Early assessment is the key to helping them achieve their full potential. The sooner you have a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment in hand, the better equipped you will be to help your child succeed — in school and in life.
