Assessments

Baby Playing with Building Blocks

Our AHPRA registered psychologists are able to provide a range of psychological assessments. 

You might find it helpful to receive a psychological assessment for one of the following reasons: 

  • For diagnosis of various difficulties including Intellectual Disability, Specific Learning Disorder, or Autism Spectrum Disorder 

  • To gain an understanding of your child's cognitive or academic skills compared to their peers

  • To understand your child's strengths and weaknesses

  • To gain an understanding of your child's functioning to assist with applications for NDIS funding

  • To determine if your child is gifted 

At Kids Inspired, we like to cater our assessment packages to meet the needs of our clients. As such, pricing will depend on the reason for the assessment.
