Educational Assessments Adelaide

Quality Educational Assessment Services in Adelaide


Our highly qualified and trained psychologists offer Adelaide children and families reliable educational assessments. Educational assessments are often provided to children experiencing learning difficulties or if they are not progressing as expected for their age. You can also seek educational assessments if your child presents exceptional needs that may require individualised adjustments in school. We are passionate about helping children and adults with learning behaviour issues, as our team understands the impact it can make if a learning disorder is detected early and intervention is conducted.

We know that a learning disorder does not mean that your child is stupid or dumb, but rather that your child learns differently, and our team is ready to help. The owner, Michael Waterman, is a qualified psychologist with over 20 years of experience helping children with such issues. With us, you can rest assured that your child will receive the help they need.

When to Consider Adelaide’s Top Educational Assessments

Besides your child’s needs, our educational assessments in Adelaide also focus on the family’s well-being. We understand that a learning disorder may be new to many people and can be overwhelming. Our psychologist works with guardians and parents directly to ensure they understand and know how to live with your situation. We use our educational assessments to identify concerns that may be symptoms of learning difficulties or strengths in children aged between 6 and 17 years. We recommend you book an appointment with our psychologist if your child:

  • Is significantly below their peers in reading and/or maths
  • Shows signs of great intelligence but has difficulty putting their thoughts on paper
  • Has challenges in attending and concentrating in the classroom
  • Is having difficulties remembering more than two items
  • Is Appearing bored and not challenged in the school environment

The best thing is to work with your teacher to know your child’s behaviour at school and keep an observant eye while at home.

Potential Benefits of Our Educational Assessments for Adelaide Parents

Our Waterman Psychology Services team uses the latest technology (Q-global Interactive) to administer educational assessments in Adelaide. The technology uses a comprehensive digital system installed on our iPads. Our Q-global Interactive is quick and gives the child an easier time than if the test was administered with pen and paper. We will determine your child’s cognitive ability and academic achievement levels through combined tests of WISC and WIAT-III. Our psychologist will write a comprehensive report, providing the assessment results and a detailed recommendation to help your child reach their full potential.

With your permission, we can also work with your child’s school to assist in developing a learning plan that targets your child’s strengths and weaknesses. Our educational assessments are beneficial in many ways, including the following;

  • A better understanding of your child’s intellectual abilities
  • Identification of learning challenges
  • Understanding your child’s learning style
